Tour de Cure Day of Event
Before you hop on your bike, important notes prior to September 10th:
  1. Bring a helmet. You must have a helmet to ride.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 or calling the number that will be on your wristband. 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. After that, you will be ready to go for September 10th.
  4. Weather: We know weather in Colorado can be temperamental, so keep an eye on the weather leading up to ride day. Be sure to bring layers and sunblock. Overcast weather can be deceiving.
  5. Know your start & end times:

Along the course:
Route Support: The Motorcycles and SAG Vehicles (Support and Gear) will be offering support to the Tour riders on every route and will be marked with a bright blue, yellow and red signs or a bright orange route flag.


If you have stopped along the roadside and need assistance, make sure to flag them down and hold your arm out with your thumb down. They can provide cyclists with roadside assistance and have the capability to call for medical or emergency assistance anywhere along the route.
Very important - If you have stopped and DO NOT need assistance, please give them a 'thumbs up' to prevent them from having to stop when it is not necessary. Minors must be accompanied by an adult in the SAG vehicle.


Bike Route Marshals:
Our official Bike Route Marshals will be wearing “BIKE ROUTE MARSHAL” bibs as they ride the routes to ensure riders are following the “rules of the road.” They are also there to help you if you need anything!
