Riders from around the world take on two challenges: raising the money needed to fund research for better treatments and a cure for diabetes, and reaching a personal training goal to prepare for a destination cycling experience. The JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes offers:
The journey begins by traveling to one of our destination Ride locations. Meet up with fellow riders and begin a fun-filled weekend including safety seminars, planned excursions, and team building celebrations. It all leads up to the big event ... Ride Day.
The simple answer is any bike that is comfortable and that is in good operating condition. When doing a JDRF ride, these are not races.
