Join Le Tour de France From Your Own Backyard

Hello Team Mountain West!

The 2022 Le Tour de France kicks off at the beginning of July (July 1 through 24 to be exact!) and that means it’s time for a challenge centered around JDRF’s Ride to Cure Diabetes.

Here’s how it works: hop on your bike (or Peloton!) every day during Le Tour (July 1 – July 24) and log miles using the Strava app. Whether you ride 5 miles or 100 miles, every stride counts! The top 3 people who log the most miles on the most days throughout Le Tour will receive a credit to their fundraising, thanks to Jordan and Michele Scharg.

Here’s the details for how YOU can earn a $500 fundraising credit:

  • Register on Team Mountain West for the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes by visiting
  • You must join the JDRF Mountain West Strava group to track your miles; CLICK HERE to join the group.
  • Remember, curing diabetes is a team sport! Be sure to share your progress on social media and include a link to your fundraising page.
  • 1st place (logging miles on the most days) receives $500, 2nd place receives $250 and 3rd place receives $100 towards their Ride fundraising, thanks to Jordan and Michele Scharg.

Now let’s ride… Together!
