On Sunday, June 1st, 2014 at the Saratoga Spings High School, the Tour de Cure will take place. Will you be cycling for a great cause?
For more information about the 2014 Tour de Cure, please click here.
The Tour de Cure is a series of fundraising cycling events held in 44 states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association.
The Tour is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. Whether you ride 10 miles or 100 miles, you will travel a route supported from start to finish with rest stops, food to fuel the journey and fans to cheer you on!
Each Tour de Cure event has its own character and style—from unique starting points to gorgeous scenery and more! Choose your state and read more about your local Tour. No matter where you ride you'll enjoy a fun day on your bike for a great cause.
Your typical Tour de Cure experience:
Arrive for your check-in time to get your rider number and turn in any donations
Enjoy the breakfast provided and have a stretch before making your way to the starting line
Our Opening Ceremonies will inspire you to have a great ride for a great reason. The Red Riders lead everyone out—they are why we ride!
Take advantage of the full route support provided: SAG cars and motorcycles keeping an eye on the roads to keep you safe; bike mechanics for any equipment issues; full rest stops with food and drink to keep you energized and hydrated
Ride the well-marked and beautiful routes in each community across the nation: from rolling farmland to ocean views, city streets, some serious hills and smooth, flat roads. Every Tour has great routes for you to choose from in various distances and levels for beginners through experienced cyclists.
You’ll be welcomed back across the finish line as a hero in the fight to Stop Diabetes!
Meet up with friends, family or teammates and have a delicious lunch. Enjoy all of the finish line festivities—it’s a party for our participants! Have a massage*, visit our sponsor and vendor booths, listen to the music/entertainment, visit the kid’s zone* if you brought the family, or chat with fellow riders if you came solo. Spend a great afternoon in the company of friends.
*Amenities vary by location; see your local Tour page for details.
In 2013, more than 65,000 cyclists in 89 events raised more than $26 million to support the mission of the American Diabetes Association: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
Many people will participate in the Tour de Cure for the camaraderie and cycling challenge, but the real reward comes in knowing that every mile we ride and every dollar we raise brings us that much closer to stopping this disease that affects over 26 million Americans.
