This year, for the first time, RBC will have a Tour de Cure Team! You’re invited to join us to represent Rochester Bicycling Club at the largest cycling event in our area. (The Rochester Tour de Cure is the #1 Tour in the country, with over 2,000 participants.)
The date is Saturday June 9, 2018. For more information, our team page is diabetes.org/rbc .
- It's a great cause, and by participating, you can make a difference. There are more than 30 million people in the US who live with diabetes every day. Funds raised are used for research, education, advocacy, parent support, summer camp and more.
- There is a ride for everyone - routes of 3, 15, 25, 40, 62 and 100 miles. Choose your pace. It's not a race.
- To help you prepare, there are training rides each week. Now that the snow has stopped, the outdoor ones are starting! (RBC rides are great training, but there is another whole set of rides that bring folks from many local teams together.)
- At this time, the RBC team is among the top 10 teams in our category, and....we have a shot at being the "Rookie Team of the Year!" The team is growing...let's do this!
