2022 Tour de Cure: Upstate New York - Saturday, June 11

Before you hop on your bike, important notes for Saturday:

  • Bring a helmet. You must have a helmet to ride.
  • Make sure you have met the $250 fundraising minimum. If you plan to bring additional donations or make a personal gift the morning of the ride, we will have a credit card system on site and collection envelopes on the information table.
  • New for 2022! We have a new Tour de Cure Medical & Mechanical Support Service we are using the day of the ride. Should you need it, requesting help on the route will be as easy as scanning a QR code on your wristband. Stay tuned on more information on this system!
  • Note: we encourage you to test the system in advance of Saturday by making sure your location services are on "Always" or "Allowed all the time" for your preferred browser and logging onto the site.
  • Weather: Dare we say, it is looking pretty good for next Saturday?! Be sure to bring layers and sunblock. Overcast weather can be deceiving.
  • Know your check-in, start & end times. See the Route chart at the bottom of this page.
  • Early Packet Pick-up will be on Friday, June 9th at Fleet Feet (155 Culver Road, Rochester) from 11a-6p. You may also pick up your packets at the Registration Tent the morning of the ride.
