The 17th annual San Diego Tour de Cure is happening this Saturday.

The event, hosted by the The American Diabetes Association’s San Diego office, is a cycling fundraiser that brings together nearly 1,000 riders.

Five routes of 1, 7, 31, 62 and 100-miles will be offered for riders of all ages and skill levels. But all routes will offer a scenic tour of San Diego’s coastal areas.

Registration for the event is $35 and each rider is asked to fundraise a minimum of $200. People who have diabetes will be recognized with a “Red Rider” jersey to wear on the day of the event.

All proceeds from the event will benefit diabetes research and programs and services for people with diabetes.
