Local Community Riding to Stop Diabetes

Santa Barbara community joins together to support friends and family living with Diabetes and to advance the mission of the American Diabetes Association.


The American Diabetes Association is bringing the Tour De Cure back to scenic Santa Barbara! The carefully chosen cycling routes, beginning and ending at Leadbetter Beach, showcase the most glorious views that Santa Barbara has to offer while providing an opportunity for our community to support those battling Diabetes. Whether a leisurely 8 mile ride along the coast is your “speed” or a challenging 67 mile course is what you crave, the Tour De Cure has something for everyone. Join the ADA as they raise money make advances in the treatment and prevention of Diabetes.

Participate today by creating a team, signing up to ride, donating or recruiting others to join in the fight! The event takes place on Saturday, November 17th, 2012.

Today, there are nearly 26 million Americans—including an estimated 17,000 Santa Barbara County residents - who have diabetes. While an estimated 18.8 million have been diagnosed, nearly 7 million people are unaware that they have the disease. If current trends continue, one in three American adults will have diabetes by 2050. To find out more information on the SANTA BARBARA Tour de Cure or to register, please call 1-888-DIABETES or visit our website.
