Event Information

Permit Type(s): County Road
the start and finish will be hosted at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont, CO. There are 4 cycling routes all located in Boulder and Larimer Counties. The 100 K and 100 Mile will go through Carter Lake and the 100 Mile with direct riders up through Horsetooth Reservoir.

The Tour de Cure Colorado is a cycling event hosted by the American Diabetes Association. TdC is a successful fundraising event for the Organization. While we have been forced to re-design some of the routes due to the September 2013 floods, we have been using County Roads and Larimer County Parks and Open Spaces for our event for the last 13 Years.

We will provide 4 route opportunities for our participants (20K, 50K, 100K, 100 mile). Please see attached maps for explanation of routes. The 20K route map to come very soon as there a few remaining revisions to be made

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.

Please refer to additional attached documents for planing and procedures.
