“I am so thrilled to be part of the Tour de Cure Women’s Series this year” said Robin. “The Women’s Cycling Association and I are truly passionate and committed to women in cycling and feel that the Women’s Series will help encourage women to get involved in cycling and, at the same time, raise critical funds to stop this growing epidemic.” According to the American Diabetes Association, of the nearly 29 million children and adults in the U.S. with diabetes, 13.4 million of them are women.

The Tour de Cure Women’s Series is a chance to feel empowered, make a difference and even make new friends. The goal is to get more women on bikes and increase the riding experience and confidence for women, but people of all ages, backgrounds and gender are welcome to ride in support of women’s cycling and the American Diabetes Association’s movement to Stop Diabetes. Whether an avid cyclist or just a beginner, the Tour de Cure Women’s Series is a chance to ride in sisterhood to celebrate all women living with diabetes and all those affected by the disease.
