TLC for Bikes and Tour De Cure had a successful launch of their first maiden spring rally of 30 miles and 52.3 miles. The day had to be changed due to rain and the new day was 32 degrees. We had about 20 people that came out and braved the cold weather for a good cause to help fight diabetes.
We want to thank Nova Police, LaFayette Village, Simply Crepes, Ora Jewelries and Crafty Beer for their participation in the event. We look forward to next year’s event and will hold it sometime in April.

“I enjoyed it. It brought me my freedom back,” said Robinson.
Robinson doesn’t see the world the way most of us do.
“I can see colors,” Robinson said. “I can see people’s faces.”
Robinson has been legally blind since an early age due to an eye disease linked to premature birth.
“What people can see at 200 feet. I can only see at five feet in front of me,” said Robinson.
Chazz Walker is there to compensate for that. He is the eyes for this tandem bike duo.
“I put my trust in my pilot,” Robinson said. “He’s the guy who steers the front of the bike.”
