Last year's Tour was great but we think the 2008 edition of One Less Car's biggest fundraiser will be even better. Here's why:
No more long waits at the registration table in the morning. Everyone who registers online will soon be getting a paper ride number in the mail. The number will identify you as a TDP rider. When you show up on the morning of the event just have the number visibly attached to your clothing and you will be ready to go!
The food and entertainment will be REAL good. When you get back from your ride you'll be treated to a pizza party provided by S'ghetti Eddie's, one of North Baltimore's best places for tasty comfort food. And we've ditched the D.J. in favor of a cool live band!
Location, Location, Location. This year's ride will be at the Canton Waterfront Park at 3001 Boston Street. We'll be right on the waterfront and just a few minutes ride from all the goings on at the annual Fell's Point Fun Festival.
Baltimore's "cyclist in chief" Mayor Sheila Dixon will be our Grand Marshall. You can join the Mayor as she leads the riders out at 7:30AM. Will you be able to keep up with the leader of our fair city?
So, if you haven't signed up, now is the time! We will close registrations at 2000 participants. The last day to register online is September 30th. Click here for the Tour du Port 2008 site. We hope to see you there! <a href="http://www.onelesscar.org/TDP/2008/">http://www.onelesscar.org/TDP/2008/</a>
And remember - all registration fees go towards One Less Car's statewide advocacy efforts!
