Last year was the inaugural Orange County Tour de Cure event. It was amazing! So many great people came out to support and ride in the event. The event fundraising goal of $80,000 was hit and surpassed!
Jax was proud to be involved as a sponsor and we created our own team! There are 26 million Americans with Diabetes and 79 million more with pre-diabetes. We have employees who are both type 1 and type 2 diabetics. So not only did we want to support the ADA, but we also wanted to support our loyal staff members.
For 2013, we are at it again! The Orange County Tour de Cure will be bigger and better than last year!
Tour de Cure OC invites all riders of all abilities to join us this year as we go from the majestic beauty of Rancho Santa Margarita to the beautiful California coastline on our road portion or get down and dirty as we mountain bike through the incomparable O’Neill Park.
Our road route options include a metric century, 25 mile ride and “beginner” ride of 8 miles. The Mountain portion has options of a 10 or 20 mile stint through the park. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can tackle both in one day! Take a 25 miles road ride and a 10 mile mountain ride all from the same start line.
Whichever routes you choose, your day begins with a complimentary breakfast and start line entertainment. Each route features fully supported rides with rest stops and SAG support and ends back in RSM with complimentary lunch from Rubio’s , live music, kids activities and an opportunity to visit with our sponsors and learn more about the latest diabetes news.
