The JDRF Ride To Cure Diabetes is an adventure of a lifetime. Riders from around the world take on two challenges: raising the critical money needed to fund the research that will cure diabetes, and reaching a personal training goal that will prepare them for their destination cycling experience. Participants spend the weeks before the Ride working with a USA Cycling certified coach and a JDRF fundraising coach to help them reach their goals. Be part of the team that moves us towards a cure with every mile pedaled and every dollar raised.
The Ride to Cure Diabetes is a unique and exciting way to fight diabetes. Participants choose from one of four Ride locations and bike for their choice of distance (usually between 30 and 100+ miles) to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF).
The Rides are 3-day adventures with incredible people featuring exhilarating 1-day bike rides. Variable route distances are geared toward both the seasoned rider and those new to the sport.
