I now have my license plate for the Tour de USA 2010 - CKYRPSA (Check Your PSA). Watch for me riding in the Los Angeles area and give me a shout. Better yet, a flick of the headlights. Anyone else feel inclined to use CKYRPSA on their state license plate?
The route is finished and posted on the event website, Tour de USA. The next task is to finish the online event registration process and begin contacting sponsors. I’ll be going out to my various alumni groups, Virginia Military Institute, the American University, and the Anderson School at UCLA to see if anyone wants to take on the “challenge of their lives,” helping men focus on prostate cancer. Allez!

It’s been a few days since I posted. I had arthroscopic knee surgery two weeks ago and that derailed me for a bit, but the knee feels great. The surgery was done at Kerlan-Jobe in Los Angeles and these guys are fantastic! I rode Dave for the first time today. Nice to be back in the saddle.
Here’s the map of the Tour de USA 2010 for prostate cancer awareness. More details will be following shortly, including a detailed day-by-day route listing, including stops. The Tour de USA 2010 registration site on the web will go live in December. Pass the word to your riding colleagues. I’m hoping to see every kind of motorcycle ever made (and still running) on this ride.
Go to http://www.tourdeusa.org and get on the mailing list for details.
Remember to test and track your PSA annually. Watch for the coming campaign to name our spokeswoman!
