Last year was the inaugural Orange County Tour de Cure event. It was amazing! So many great people came out to support and ride in the event. The event fundraising goal of $80,000 was hit and surpassed!
Jax was proud to be involved as a sponsor and we created our own team! There are 26 million Americans with Diabetes and 79 million more with pre-diabetes. We have employees who are both type 1 and type 2 diabetics. So not only did we want to support the ADA, but we also wanted to support our loyal staff members.
For 2013, we are at it again! The Orange County Tour de Cure will be bigger and better than last year!
Tour de Cure OC invites all riders of all abilities to join us this year as we go from the majestic beauty of Rancho Santa Margarita to the beautiful California coastline on our road portion or get down and dirty as we mountain bike through the incomparable O’Neill Park.
Our road route options include a metric century, 25 mile ride and “beginner” ride of 8 miles. The Mountain portion has options of a 10 or 20 mile stint through the park. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can tackle both in one day! Take a 25 miles road ride and a 10 mile mountain ride all from the same start line.
Whichever routes you choose, your day begins with a complimentary breakfast and start line entertainment. Each route features fully supported rides with rest stops and SAG support and ends back in RSM with complimentary lunch from Rubio’s , live music, kids activities and an opportunity to visit with our sponsors and learn more about the latest diabetes news.

So I’m sure all of you have heard about this little race called the Amgen Tour Of California!
Well, Jax decided to join the festivities at Stage 2 in Murrieta, California. We attended the vendor fair, but also hosted a breakfast for our valued clients as well as an organized group ride and a BBQ lunch at our Murrieta store.
Like this wasn’t already exciting enough, right?
Just shortly before Stage 2, Andy Schleck from Radioshack Leopard Trek came over to sign our event trailer! Was it possibly due to the huge picture of him on the back of the trailer? Or maybe because he is just a nice guy. Either way, he made our day with his kindness towards Jax and we will always be grateful!
“Built on the foundation of Trust, Respect and Unity, TRU Cycling was formed in 2010 by a group of friends who shared a passion for cycling. TRU Cycling started with a diverse group of cyclists including Master, Senior, Junior racers and recreational riders”.
This is how TRU Cycling describes their team. We couldn’t agree more, except, they left out how nice and gracious their team members are!
Jax have been partnered up with TRUl Cycling for the past several months. We were fortunate enough to meet by chance. TRU was looking for a new title sponsor, and we were looking for a road bike racing team. From the first meeting, we knew that the TRU team and members were special. They are passionate, caring riders who embrace all aspects of cycling and have immersed themselves into its culture. The meaning of the name TRU (Trust, Respect, Unity) is the really the beginning of how special and unique this cycling team is. their team/club includes: competitive racing, mentorship of junior riders, training and club rides, organized charity rides, and social networking to promote healthy living. This team has many members, yet still maintains the feel of a smaller team. This is apparent in that the team members regularly race, and do group rides together, and not just a few riders show up. It is impressive to see how many members show up to ride and support one another! TRU members are very willing to help and ride with anyone interested in cycling with open arms. In addition, the team has three professional photographers that supply some of the greatest footage we have ever seen. Check out their Facebook page to see thousands of pictures from road cycling events.
Jax thanks each and every member of TRU Cyclingl for their kindness, integrity, and the ability to become a part of their “family”!

“Kasel Cycling is a coed cycling team based in Orange County, California. Our twelve members participate in anything cycling throughout Southern California but mostly like to keep our bikes in the dirt!”
This is how Kasel Cycling describes their team. In most cases this is true. But from Jax point of view, Kasel Cycling is a great group of men and women who LOVE cycling and are great role models for the cycling community!

They are passionate, caring riders who embrace all aspects of cycling and have immersed themselves into its culture. The Kasel team is small by choice. The team is limited to like-minded friends who enjoy each others time together, as well as the time spent riding and racing. Make no mistake, these folks have close bonds with all their team members, but are very wiling to help and ride with anyone interested in cycling with open arms.
