Have you ever wanted to be a part of the JDRF Ride to Cure program? Now is your chance! The JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes is a charitable bike ride that to date has raised over $47 million for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The Ride gives cyclists of all ages and skill levels the opportunity fundraise for JDRF, the global leader in T1D research. There will be a weekend-long celebration culminating in the one-day ride where you get to choose the mileage and pace comfortable for you!
The 2019 JDRF Ride season will officially begin on Wednesday, January 16th at 11:00 a.m. CT when registration opens. When you register for the Ride, you will be joining one of the best (and largest) teams in the country: Team Western Wisconsin. Team Western Wisconsin, otherwise known as the Honey Badgers, is a nationally recognized team thanks to our enthusiasm and dedication to finding a cure! There is no biking experience necessary when you join the Ride; once you register, you will receive coaching from USA Cycling certified coaches and have the support of more than 100 teammates who will help you succeed.
The 2019 JDRF Ride season will include five locations:
- La Crosse, WI: August 8 – 11
- Sonoma, CA: August 22 – 25 (NEW LOCATION)
