The Tour de Cure Event Day is Like No Other!

Tour de Cure is our premier cycling event for all ages and abilities. Choose the course that best suits you, your family, friends, and coworkers. You will see beach cruisers, to road bikes, and all styles in between. Whether you are an occasional rider or an experienced cyclist, the Tour de Cure has a little something for everyone.

The Tour de Cure: Mid-Atlantic event starts in the quaint and charming town of Smithfield, then travels through the peaceful countryside of Isle of Wight and Surry Counties. All the routes will be well-marked and fully supported with bike mechanics, volunteer route marshals, rest stops with food and water, cheering volunteers, and more! When you return to the start/finish line, you will enjoy a delicious post-ride meal, adult beverage, massage, and finisher medal and delight in the music, fun zone, cheers, and camaraderie around you.
