Bikes, riders, volunteers, and supporters scattered the grounds of Texas Motor Speedway this Saturday at the 2012 Tour de Cure DFW, organized by the American Diabetes Association. With one common goal, stopping diabetes, folks from all around the state pedaled their way through the course to raise both funds and awareness.
As the morning turned into midday, the temperature rose with the enthusiasm, and we at Kewl took it upon ourselves to provide a break from the heat in any way we could. We watched countless riders take refuge under the Kewl Mister, shortly after setting it up (it’s amazing how refreshing a few small drops of water can be after you’ve ridden 60+ miles!) More importantly, we had a few of the newly-developed ClimaPaks on hand for the event. This gave us a chance to prove up our insulin cooling awesomeness in the midst of a sweltering summer day. Our team got to kick it with Red Riders (those riding in the Tour with diabetes), and diabetes supporters alike, talking about the obstacles that diabetes throws out when it comes to things like cycling and family trips.
