More than 250 cyclists donned their rain gear and hopped on their bikes Sunday to help support diabetes research.
The annual Mount Desert Island ":Tour de Cure": kicked off from the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor.
Cyclists could choose from a 25, 50 or 100K race along the MDI coast.
Each participant raised at least $150…and all of the money raised this weekend will go towards diabetes research.
Organizers were optimistic that Sunday’s rides raised more than $80,000 for diabetes research.
