About JDRF Ride

The JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes is a charitable bike ride that to date has raised over $38 million for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The Ride gives cyclists of all ages and skill levels the opportunity fundraise for JDRF, the global leader in T1D research.

The JDRF Ride isn't just a bike ride: it's where hundreds of riders come together from all over the world to make new friendships, experience the unparalleled camaraderie of the Ride community and raise money to find a cure for T1D.

Reach your goals

Riders choose one of our fundraising packages and set their own mileage goal. Along the way, riders receive the full support of the JDRF Ride Community, from the ride coaches to the fundraising experts who will help you reach and exceed your fundraising goals.

Join the JDRF Ride Community

When you register, you'll become a part of the JDRF Ride family, a community of all ages who return year after year to come together, inspire each other and raise money to fund critical T1D research.

In addition to the comradery, registered riders who complete their fundraising will receive a commemorative JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes jersey made by Hincapie Sportswear. Any T1D Rider will have the option to receive a special T1D version of this jersey instead, to inspire us all as you cross the finish line.

Pick a premier Ride event

There are five 2017 Rides to Cure Diabetes across the country. The Rides, which occur August through November, each offer a unique and unforgettable experience. From riding the rolling hills of upstate New York to being one of 9,000 riders in the desert of Tucson, JDRF has a Ride for you.

Help reach a world without T1D

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease affecting approximately 1.25 million Americans in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone people need to get energy from food. T1D strikes both children and adults at any age and suddenly. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is currently nothing you can do to prevent it, and there is no cure.

As the leading global organization funding T1D research, our strength lies in our exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D. We will not rest until there is a cure for T1D and its complications.
