The Tour de Cure Event Day is Like No Other!
Participating in the Tour de Cure is an experience you will never forget. More than just a cycling event, the Saratoga Springs Tour de Cure is a celebration, bringing together cyclists of all ages and ability levels to Stop Diabetes®. Nestled in beautiful Upstate NY, Saratoga Springs is a dynamic and fun environment surrounded by arts, food, culture, and history.
The Saratoga Tour has 5 routes from which to choose. The 10 mile is a beautiful flat ride through Saratoga Spa State Park distinguished by its classical architecture and listed as a National Historic Landmark. The 28 mile travels through the State Park and scenic Saratoga County. The 50 mile has moderate hills to climb at the 14 and 27 mile mark and a mostly downhill grade for the final 15 miles. The 62.5 and the 100 mile rides are for the experienced cyclist who enjoys a challenge.
Along the way we provide rest stops stocked with refreshments, bike mechanics, medical support, and volunteers to fuel and cheer you along your journey. Following your ride, celebrate with us at the post-ride festival, which includes lunch, massages, and live entertainment.
You will be inspired by all of those joining you as you make an impact for this great cause. Make a difference and register for the Tour de Cure today!
