Fifth annual Tour de Tryptophan

Riders in Southern California this Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, may come burn off their turkey to raise funds for the XX at the Fifth Annual Tour de Tryptophan/24 Hours of the Fullerton Loop. The event commences at noon on Friday and finishes at noon on Saturday. With no rules, riders can start or finish any time, do one lap or go home for the evening and do another in the morning. Seventeen laps seems to be the reigning record.

This year's proceeds will benefit the SoCal High School Cycling League, which will bring cycling to Southern California High Schools in 2009. Former beneficiaries of the Tour de Tryp have included the Tara Llanes Recovery Fund, CHOC Hospitals, and various other charities.
