Tonight in over 300 US communities and 18 countries, bicyclists go to the roads to honor those that have been killed and injured on the roadways. 

Following a brief program, participants will ride in silent procession…the Silence will be Deafening!  Come join me tonight…all you need is a bicycle and a helmet.

TdK Purple Wave: The Whole Way to the University of Sioux Falls

(click to enlarge)
"My biggest fear is that they will confuse me with another racer"--Claudio "Il Diablo" Chiappucci

The 2011 Argus Leader Tour de Kota™ cruises the college and university campuses of eastern South Dakota from June 5–10.

This year's six-day excursion along the back roads and byways of beautiful South Dakota finishes its 430 mile (692 Km) route at the University of Sioux Falls campus.  The route, beginning and ending in Sioux Falls, has participants visiting 30 towns and cities with overnight stays at Augustana College, South Dakota State University,  Dakota State University, University of South Dakota and the University of Sioux Falls.
Unlike the Italian pro-road racer Chiappucci, I don't have to worry about being mistaken at this Tour de Kota™ for garnishing an ordinary jersey (or cunning attacks on the peloton).  Many "rollers" will be exalting their alma mater spirit and affiliation by "wearing their colours!"  Subsequently, a team jersey was uniquely crafted for alumni, students, staff, faculty and friends of the University of Sioux Falls!  These Champion System™ club-fit jerseys are available until March 28th (Interested?  Email me).  Ride one day or all week! 

Join Team USF in the Purple Wave at TdK--"The Whole Way!"
