Participants choose from a 15, 25 or 60 mile race. Folks of all ages take part, as well as cheering fans along the way.
Some people take it a step further and add themes and costumes to the mix, such as local personality John Easton. This year marks his 10th Tour de Cure.
Easton rides as part of ":Team Fred":, and has done some pretty interesting things to raise money in the past, including riding in his underwear.
This year ":Team Fred": will be wearing shirts and ties, and for a $20 donation tothe team, they’re giving away custom ":Team Fred": beverage containers.
If you’d like to donate to ":Team Fred": to help raise money for the American Diabetes Association, you can contact Easton at [email protected]
