Sunday –   One fun way to get out with your family, friends or co-workers on your bicycles this summer is through the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure, which has routes designed for all riders – from 8-mile family rides to 100-mile century rides. It is a ride, not a race, so participants are encouraged to go at their own pace. Tours will take place in 44 states across the country to benefit the American Diabetes Association and its efforts to stop diabetes.  The Los Angeles Tour de Cure takes place on Sunday, April 29th in Long Beach beginning and ending at the Queen Mary.  For more details, click here.
