Hey Mary...saw your post in the Cheeseheads room! You ask about anyone doing the Tour de Cure in Madison. You may want to check with Erin Ball, she's a member on TUD and is I believe on the Team Type I for cycling. You should be able to search her under members and you ask if she's doing it. She's somewhere in WI..Good Luck!
