Village Bikes Sponsors Tour de Cure

Once again this year Village Bikes is proud to be a sponsor of the Tour de Cure. The Tour de Cure is a series of fundraising cycling events held nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association. The Tour is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist.

By riding in the Tour de Cure, you can help the American Diabetes Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
