Alpe d’Huez for Prostate Cancer Awareness


As part of our prostate cancer awareness program, I rented a bicycle during my July visit to Italy and France and climbed the Alpe d’Huez in our current bicycling kit – although it’s a bit difficult to see the logo in the picture. I learned that the Dutch cancer foundation does an annual fundraiser on the Alpe d’Huez that raised 5 million Euros on June 6, 2009. I’ve got an idea for a similar event here in the US.

To my dismay, however, I had forgotten to take my bicycle fit dimensions with me, so I made the climb with a less than optimal bicycle adjustment. But, I’ll never need to suffer like that again. My firm, TSG, has just released an iPhone application, MyBikeInfo, that records every possible dimension of a bicycle adjustment for all types of bicycles: road, time trial, track, mountain, etc.


The application is available now from the iTunes application store, and 50% of all proceeds are going to the Prostate Cancer Awareness Project to support awareness and annual testing for men without health insurance. Give it try! You should be able to access the app from the MyBikeInfo website, but if that does not work, just open your iTunes application and search for MyBikeInfo.

And watch this blog for information on our new project. PS. This picture was taken at Turn 4 and I was more than ready for the climb to be over!
