Tour de Cure

A feel-good fundraising event for riders of all levels!
Tour de Cure is a ride, not a race, which raises money for the American Diabetes Association through nation-wide cycling events. Take part in all the fun while you take a stand against diabetes!

Tour de Cure features routes of varying lengths for riders of all skill levels; there’s a little something for everyone from a quick jaunt to a more challenging distance. No matter which ride you choose, take it at your own speed and enjoy the journey! All routes are safe and fully supported with route marshals, SAG vehicles, mechanical support, and rest stops stocked with water, sports drinks, and a variety of snacks to keep you fired up! For more information, just visit the Tour de Cure official site. [Link]
