2012 Tour de Cure set for May 12
Tour de Cure is back!
The Tour de Cure, a ride and a signature American Diabetes event, is slated for May 12th 2012 (Save the Date!). 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 64 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 over $20 million to support the mission of the ADA: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
The Delaware ride is organized by volunteers from the Delaware Cycling Community & the American Diabetes Association.
The annual event will kick off its 2012 Ride on May 12th 2012 At 100 White Clay Center Dive Newark, DE 19720 (MAP)
