Tour de Cure event day is packed with excitement as soon as you park and unload your bike. Check-in time depends on your route choice. Breakfast will be available before your ride, and after you cross the finish line, you can join the festivities and celebrate your accomplishments. 

Join us and ride regardless of your skill level on your bike. Beginners can amble through Palo Alto on our 10K (6.5-mile) route. More intermediate riders will love our 50K (32-mile) route that takes you through Woodside. Feeling like adding some climbing? Go for the 70K (43-mile) that will take you alongside Upper Crystal Springs Reservoir. Expert riders will be rewarded with gorgeous mountain views on the 100K (64-mile) route that includes over 5500 feet of climbing as you scale Kings Mountain.

Tour de Cure Northern California is a one-day ride that starts and finishes at the beautiful HP campus in Palo Alto. Celebrate at the finish line with music, food, and drinks regardless of which route you choose to ride. Routes will have dedicated recovery stations to aid you in ride.

Matching gifts can be a great way to double or even triple your funds raised! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Your company may match your donation as well as donations made by your co-workers if they also apply for matching gifts. Don't forget to encourage your donors to ask their companies about matching gifts too! 

Please follow these steps for processing matching gifts:

  1. Find out if your company has a matching gift program, and if so, how they want you to submit your donation for the matching gift. 
  2. Make your donation and follow your company's instructions to submit for a matching gift.
  3. Forward your matching gift submission receipt/confirmation email to ADA staff Tom Hall and Carolyn Eisen (thall@diabetes.org, ceisen@diabetes.org)
