Tour de Cure, Del Mar Fairgrounds

The Tour de Cure, benefiting the Greater San Diego Area of the American Diabetes Association will take place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Saturday, April 9th. Cyclists of all levels will join forces in an effort to Stop Diabetes®. Participants can choose from various routes that wind them through the gorgeous coastline. Proceeds raised will go towards helping with critical funds for diabetes research, information and advocacy.

“This is a ride to take on the challenge of defeating diabetes.  Every mile we ride and every dollar we raise brings us that much closer to reaching our common goal—to stop this disease that affects over 29 million Americans,” said Larissa Roman, executive director of Greater San Diego Area American Diabetes Association. “Our event is designed to accommodate all cycling levels, from children to advanced cyclists. With five different routes this event is truly made for anyone and everyone who wishes to help make a difference for those who are affected by diabetes.”

Participants have the opportunity to participate in the one mile kids ride, 15 mile, 29 mile, 62 mile and 100 mile-rides. The 15-mile ride is a new element to this year’s event. Waiting at the finish line will be more than 25 vendors, live music, healthy street tacos and organic beer. Participants are also eligible to receive several perks depending on how much they are able to raise for the American Diabetes Association’s Greater San Diego Area. All participants will receive a free lunch and a special 25th anniversary medal, as this year is the Tour de Cure’s 25th anniversary. Those who raise $1,000 or more will receive VIP treatment with a massage and one beer. 

“Everyone knows someone who has been touched by diabetes and we are committed to educating others on how to join the millions in the fight to help stop this disease,” said Roman. “We appreciate the community’s involvement to help us expand our impact and intensify our advocacy efforts—we really look forward to hosting a unique experience you won’t want to miss.”
