The purpose of the Red Riders is to celebrate everyone who lives with type 1, type 2 diabetes and showcase the courage it takes to live every day with this difficult disease. It's time to recognize those women with diabetes who get on their bikes and ride because they are our true heroes!
That YOU are not alone! You can ride to thrive with diabetes! There are so many other women who may share a similar story, and hundreds more to support you, being a Red Rider can help with your first mile or your millionth—in your fight to live a healthier life! Riding your bike is a great way to stay in shape and exercise is extremely important for everyone with diabetes.
If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes you are eligible to become a Red Rider. All you need to do is register for the Tour de Cure Women’s Series as a Red Rider (it will be a registration type you can easily see). You will receive a free Red Rider sleeveless jersey on the day of the event after you have raised your fundraising minimum of $200.
YES! You (and those that support you) can join Team Red, which is made up of Red Riders AND those who support Red Riders. Anyone without a team should join Team Red and you will instantly be a part of the greater diabetes community. If you are already part of another team you can stay on your team and still be recognized as a Red Rider.
