Tour de Cure 

More than 250 cyclists donned their rain gear and hopped on their bikes Sunday to help support diabetes research.

The annual Mount Desert Island &quot:Tour de Cure&quot: 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.
