Tour de Cure

Red Riders

Individuals living with diabetes are why we ride, why we advocate and why we won’t stop until we find a cure. If you are living with diabetes you will be recognized as a Red Rider and will receive support and recognition on event day and beyond.

We are Connected for Life

  • Every day more than 4,000 people are newly diagnosed with diabetes in America. Nearly 115 million Americans have diabetes or prediabetes.
  • Red Riders include anyone living with diabetes (type 1, type 2, gestational). Choose Red Rider when registering to receive recognition. If you do not want to be recognized, choose rider registration.

You are not alone

  • Hundreds of people share a similar story, and hundreds more will support you when you register as a Red Rider and join our community.
  • Red Riders are why we ride! On event day, Red Riders are recognized, cheered, encouraged, and much more. These riders will also receive special elite recognition gear when fundraising goals are achieved.
