SARATOGA, NY (NEWS10) – Hundreds of cyclists turned out Sunday for the 25th annual Saratoga Tour de Cure.
This event was held in Saratoga and it is the second highest performing tour in the nation. Its goal was to raise money for Diabetes research and it featured 10, 28, 50, 62.5, and 100 mile routes.
Unfortunately, both the 62.5 and 100 mile races were condensed to 50 miles due to inclement weather.
But rain or not, cyclists still hit the road to find a cure.
“It was one of the first things I was involved in when I was diagnosed and it’s a huge community and this turned into a family for me and when I was little I used to call this Diabetes Christmas. It was the best thing I ever did. I look forward to it every year and the morning of was better than Christmas,” said cyclist Kaileigh Moore.
Organizers Sunday said they raised $1.3 million last year and expected to raise more than $1 million this year.
