Welcome to the 2014 Finger Lakes Tour de Cure!

The Watkins Glen FLX Tour de Cure is a beautiful Tour along the impressive wine trail of Seneca Lake. From the 10 mile family ride to the challenging 100 mile century ride there is a route for every skill level. 

The ride begins and ends at the Watkins Glen High School and each route winds its way through the country roads of the Finger Lakes.

The 10 and 20 mile riders will enjoy a ride on the historic Catherine Valley Trail (CVT).  Developed for year round pleasure of walkers, skiers and runners, our riders can expect the beautiful wooded views as they travel the CVT, the surface is comprised of both paved areas and packed crush stone. Whether you are an occasional rider or an experienced cyclist, there is a route just for you:

Along the way there are fully stocked rest stops, safety vehicles, bike mechanics and more. Once you return to the school you will be cheered on by our volunteers and treated to lunch. So take the Ride of Your Life and sign up today! 

Tour de Cure is more than just a cycling event. It's a life-changing event. A day full of fun and excitement where riders of all levels join forces in the fight to Stop Diabetes® and raise critical funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy in support of the American Diabetes Association.
