JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes is a charitable bike ride that raises money for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The
JDRF Ride gives new and experienced cyclists — and their friends and families — the opportunity to
fundraise for life — changing T1D research along with the entire Ride community.
Participants choose how and where they want to ride, train with their coach and team to achieve their mileage
goals (no matter how long or short) and use guidance from their JDRF chapters to meet and exceed their
JDRF Ride isn't just a bike ride: it's an experience where hundreds of riders come together from all over the
world to make new friendships, enjoy the unparalleled camaraderie of the Ride community and raise money to find
a cure for T1D.
For those who have participated in JDRF destination rides before, we miss being together too and look forward to
offering these events again soon. In the meantime, join the community that's dedicating their miles towards
mission this year and register today! Check out the upcoming calendar of events to see what's happening this
year. As COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and more events come available, our calendar of events will continue
We have an exciting season planned and fully expect we'll be back in the saddle together again in some capacity
this year. As we gear up, get registered and begin participating in the JDRF Ride Community. As events and
activities come available, and in accordance with CDC's guidelines, we will be updating our Calendar of Events.
Be sure to bookmark the page and check back often so you don't miss out on any of the excitement!
You must be at least 13 years old in order to participate. If you are between 13 and 18 years of age, you must
have a parental/guardian consent form signed and be accompanied by a participating parent/guardian at all times.
Your physical and mental health are more important now than ever and we believe that continuing to stay active
will help with both. We encourage you to continue riding, as your local guidelines and your safety allow or even
ride indoors. Staying connected to your Ride Team will also help!
Coaches provide support to their riders, setting goals and assist with training plans as requested. So much of
the enjoyment within the JDRF Ride community is through the social interactions through group rides and social
gatherings. Please check in with your Coach and Chapter to see what's happening in your area!
There are no minimum fundraising requirements to participate. Rather, we will offer fundraising incentives and
exciting perks for the 2021 Ride season for those who fundraise. Click here for details.
You can cancel your registration at any time, but without the constraints of fundraising minimums, we hope you

we acknowledge the massive economic uncertainties and the critical needs of our community. If you still wish to

Please send all check and cash donations to your JDRF Chapter for processing. You can also direct donors to your
