While the temperatures outside may still be chilly, the 23 riders from our Eastern PA Chapter are eager to get on their bikes and start training for the 2019 JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes season! The Sonoma, California, location is sold out, but if you would like to join the waitlist, please follow these instructions.

We still have four great locations for you to choose from:

La Crosse, Wisconsin: August 8-11

La Crosse, Wisconsin, is a historic, vibrant city with a flair for the old and a sprinkle of the new. Nestled between the bluffs of Wisconsin and the Mississippi River, riders will navigate a course that starts in La Crosse and crosses three states, two bridges and one mighty river.

Nestled in the heart of the country, the relatively flat route makes this one of our most family- friendly rides that’s also perfect for beginners. And, the scenic views and charm of downtown La Crosse make it memorable for all.

Saratoga Springs, New York: September 12-15

Located 25 miles north of Albany, NY, in the southernmost foothills of the Adirondack Region, Saratoga Springs combines the quaintness of New England with the beauty of upstate New York. Easily accessible by plane, train or automobile, this Ride will feature some of the most scenic roads in the northeast just as the fall foliage begins to turn. This JDRF-only Ride will offer multiple route options ranging from 32 to 100 miles.

Amelia Island, Florida: October 3-6

The Amelia Island Ride to Cure Diabetes will feature the best of the coastal South. Flat roads, Spanish Moss and ocean views are just a few of the highlights that will welcome riders to this beautiful location.

Starting out with a northerly spin through the island, riders will experience the scenic roads through Fernandina Beach. A turn south will take the ride off the island and down Highway A1A, with beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean. Multiple route options will be available for riders of all abilities and the views and roadways are sure to make this a memorable ride for all!

Death Valley, California: October 17-20

Located in southern California, Death Valley is one of the most otherworldly of America’s natural wonders—an eerie panorama of salt flats and elevations. With rolling hills and steep mountains, Death Valley is also famous for Badwater, which is the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere.

Whether you’re a competitive cyclist, Sunday rider or novice, you’re sure to enjoy an incredible weekend—and the haunting beauty—that brings JDRF Riders back year after year to cycle up to 100 miles.
