Join Team CycleQuest

Team CycleQuest raised $7,935 in 2011, $12,772 in 2012 and $18,600 in 2013 for the American Diabetes Association by fundraising to ride in the annual Tour de Cure bike ride . The TdC this year will be on Saturday May 31st and has many ride routes up to a full 100 miles century. Even if you plan on fundraising with a different team come and participate in the Burnathon which is the perfect event to ride with your team members during these cold winter months. Ride for 1 hour, 2 hours or up to 6 hours which is the equivalent to riding a 100 miles century. There is no better indoor endurance event this winter to challenge yourself to test your fitness. Even if you are not looking to ride many hours on the bike you can come to the studio, donate towards this great cause and get in a fun calorie burning workout.

How do I register to participate in the Burnathon?

Do I have to join a team to participate in the Tour de Cure ride?

No, you can do a regular individual registration and do the ride, but if you want to get connected with other riders and have your donations pooled together in a team effort then there are many Tour de Cure teams to choose from. If you are associated with CycleQuest Studio then join Team CycleQuest from your Tour page. We’d love to have you onboard and train with us in the studio and on the road.

If I am planning on riding the Tour de Cure do I have to raise the donations now and take part in the Burnathon?

No, but why not take care of the fundraising early and take some free indoor cycling classes at CycleQuest Studio this Saturday!
