Tour de Cure is…

…a series of fundraising cycling events held in 43 states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association.

The Tour is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone
from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. Whether you ride
10 miles or 100 miles, you will travel a route supported from start to
finish with rest stops, food to fuel the journey and fans to cheer you

Each Tour de Cure event has its own character and style—from unique starting points to gorgeous scenery and more!

Last year, more than 50,000 cyclists in 80 Tour events raised nearly $17 million to support the mission of the ADA: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

Fort Worth Mountain Biking Association and Lanny's Alta
Cocina will be hosting the first annual Fort Worth Fat Tire Festival at
Gateway Park. This is an event for the whole family and is a fund raiser
benefiting the FWMBA. FWMBA works closely with the city of Ft. Worth,
Streams and Valleys, and the Trinity River Visions group in order to
bring mountain bike trails to our city. FWMBA has logged MORE volunteer
man hours of labor than ANY OTHER club or association in Ft. Worth. This
Fall, FWMBA will break ground at Gateway park to bring an additional 5
miles of new trails that will provide over 250 ft. of elevation gain.
With your help, we will be able to increase our club membership numbers,
volunteer numbers, and be able to buy all the tools required to
undertake this massive trail building project! SO, come out and join us
for this super fun Mountain Bikers' party and help make a difference!!!

Location: Take Beach Street from HW121 or I30 and go east on East 1st
Street. Enter Gateway from East 1st Street, not Beach. The trail head is
near the soccer fields.

The event is family-friendly and free--including a Kids' Bike Safety Rodeo, display of Victorian Highwheels,

and a chance to network with area cyclists. We are coordinating several "Meet and Ride" group rides that will converge on Centennial Park. To join a ride group, please email [email protected]
