Congratulations to all who participated in the Tour de Cure on Saturday, June 5!  It was a great success, as thousands of bikers from around the region gathered to support those who live with diabetes.  The American Diabetes Association is still campaigning, and they are very close to reaching their $700,000 goal!

Designed as a series of routes for various riding distances, Tour de Cure is able to accommodate participants of all ages and experience levels. From 4 year-olds being towed along in bike attachments to 70 year-old professional cyclists; whether riding for oneself, a loved one, or simply to support a good cause, people from all walks of life were present at Saturday’s event at Reston Town Center.

 As the Tour is not a race, but rather a paced excursion, bikers were able to focus on the cause rather than their individual performance.  Staggering the start of the various biking distances—which ranged from 12 miles to 100 miles—allowed for all groups to return to the town center around the same time period. Riders came back to cheering fans and enthusiastic supporters.

After the bikers returned, the fun was only just beginning. The event featured a catered lunch to all participants, karate and hula performances, bike check-ups from RTC’s own The Bike Lane, a Gold’s Gym Cycle-a-thon, and more!

Tour de Cure’s tour de force left the greater Washington area filled with anticipation for next year’s event, which is scheduled to take place on Sunday June 3, 2012!

The Tour de Cure is coming to Reston Town Center this Sunday, June 5, 6:00am-5:00pm! This national series of fundraising cycling events is held in 43 states and benefits 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!

Last year, more than 50,000 cyclists in 80 Tour events raised nearly $17 million to support the mission of the ADA: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetesTake the Ride of Your Life. Sign up today and let’s ride!
