The Tour de Cure is the largest cycling event for diabetes in the country, with 91 events in 44 states with more than 63,000 participants, says the ADA.
The event not only features routes that take cyclists throughout Northern Virginia on a beautiful spring day, but also starting ceremonies with noted speakers, fully stocked rest stops, and closing ceremonies featuring complimentary lunch and festivities.
Registration is still open for individuals and teams who will ride distances of 4, 14, 20, 35, 55, 82 and 106 miles. All routes start at Reston Town Center. The shorter distances stay in Reston; the longer ones take riders past Leesburg. See the routes on the Tour de Cure website.
The registration fee is $25.00. The fundraising minimum is $250.
Check-in and breakfast begin Saturday at 6 a.m. Shorter routes start later in the morning. The finish line celebration will take place in the Reston Town Center pavilion after the ride.
