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!

A $10 donation with your old bike will repair it for re-use with Bikes for the World.

The first three R4 Collection Days resulted in tons of electronics for recycling and paper shredded on site, and hundreds of eyeglasses, bicycles and portable sewing machines for repair and re-use for shipment to underprivileged areas of the world.
