Event Information

Permit Type(s): County Road
The event will follow same route as years past. Our 100 mile and 100 Kilometer routes travel through Carter Lake and on Larimer County Roads. The 100 Mile route travels through Glen Haven and returns just before Estes Park.

The Tour de Cure Colorado is a one day non-competitive cycling event that raises critical funds for the American Diabetes Association. We are entering our 14th year of the event and the date will be August 17, 2013. Last year’s event (2012) raised just under $900,000.

The ride begins at the Boulder County Fairgrounds and continues along various roads up through Estes Park and back. (Estes Park is for the 100 mile route only). The 100 mile ride departs Longmont at 6 a.m., the 100k ride departs at 7 a.m., the 50k ride departs at 10 a.m. and the 20k ride departs at 11 a.m.

This year we are expecting 2000 participants who will be divided fairly evenly amongst our 4 different routes. The distances are 20k, which is on the Longmont Green Belt System, 50K, 100K, and 100 miles. Please refer to maps for route specifics.

Safety, Communications and Emergency Plans

All riders sign a waiver and will be briefed multiple times throughout the months leading up to the ride about bicycle safety and Tour de Cure safety protocol. These specifics will be posted in the near future on

We will have 10-13 Support and Gear vehicles traveling the route to assist riders and will have supplies and can also provide transportation for riders, as well as 10-15 Goldwing / Motorcycle riders patrolling the course. State Patrol will be in charge of major traffic control, we will be coordinating with Captain Bellinger.

We will have ham radio operators in all SAG vehicles, at all rest stops and stationed at the event headquarters in Longmont. There are 13 rest stops in total spread approximately 10 miles apart along the various routes. Each rest stop is provided with adequate trash receptacles and portable restrooms. S&B Portable Restrooms is our contracted company to handle both the rest room and trash pickup. We also perform a thorough sweep of the route as the event closes down and retrieve all supplies and additional waste.

Rest stops, ham operators, medical volunteers, SAG drivers, Goldwings and headquarters dispatch will have a contact list of all emergency services as they relate to route jurisdiction areas. These emergency responders will be contacted at least 14 days prior to the event to alert them. All riders will be instructed to call 911 in the case of a severe emergency, and will be given a direct line to the Tour HQ area in the event they need to contact dispatch.

Loveland Fire

Status: Approved

Comments: Emergency Access: An emergency access path of no less than 20' in width shall be maintained clear of all immovable objects on streets or fire apparatus roads at all times during the event. Road blocks may be placed on public streets to prevent traffic crossing, but cannot block emergency vehicle travel. If road blocks are used ensure staff is available to remove road blocks or barricades should emergency vehicle travel is necessary (2006 International Fire Code, Section 503.1). Should a need for emergency service assistance be required within the Fire Authority boundaries, Loveland Fire will utilize the Incident Command System, and ask for all participants to work within the the command structure that is created as the authority having jurisdiction, (this is typical within all fire districts and jurisdictions following the National Incident Management System).
