Join Us on the
 7th Annual Tour de Blue Bicycle Ride
Saturday  April 26, 2014  

Red Diamond Corporate Headquarters in Moody, Alabama


Who:  The Tour de Blue is a bicycle ride that benefits the Urology Health Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing prostate cancer screenings free of charge to men in Alabama who cannot afford the tests. The ride is presented by Urology Centers of Alabama and Birmingham Bicycle Company, and is the third century in the 2014 Alabama Backroads Century Series.

   There will be several exciting cycling routes offered for the 2014 Tour de Blue, with three ride options (50, 75, and 100 miles). The terrain is rolling with several challenging climbs. The cost of the ride is $50.00 and includes an event t-shirt and lunch provided by Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q. There are periodic rest stops on all of the routes that are well stocked with food and drinks. There is full SAG support for all of the riders.

We are also offering a newly designed Tour de Blue jersey for an additional $60.00. This jersey is of excellent quality and is a great way to show your support for the Tour de Blue. For more details, including sizing information, please see the description on Active.com.

  The 2014 Edition of the Tour de Blue will be held on Saturday, April 26, 2014, at 8:00 AM. Registration will open at 6:30 AM. Riders are asked to park at the Red Diamond Corporate Headquarters, which has two large parking lots that can accommodate a large number of cars.

Where:  The starting venue for the Tour de Blue will be the Red Diamond Corporate Headquarters at 400 Park Ave., Moody, Alabama 35004 (just outside Birmingham). Red Diamond is a 106-year-old family-owned coffee, tea, and foodservice company. The corporate office overlooks a gorgeous lake and is located on 65 acres with the Coffee/Tea Manufacturing and Foodservice Distribution Centers. (map)

Why:  The goal of the Tour de Blue bicycle ride is to raise funds to help provide free prostate cancer screenings to the poorest communities in the State of Alabama, and to increase awareness of the importance of early testing and treatment of prostate cancer. Since 2007, the Urology Health Foundation has screened thousands of men for prostate cancer for free in many Alabama counties. If an abnormality is found and the patient is unable to afford treatment, the Urology Health Foundation will assist in helping to find treatment at no cost to the patient.

How you can help:  Please come out and ride the Tour de Blue. The courses are scenic, and the rest stops are staffed with happy folks eager to help you enjoy your day of cycling. Your contribution helps those who are at the greatest risk of developing prostate cancer. Pre-registration is now available at Active.com with discounts for early registration. If you can't ride but want to donate to the Urology Health Foundation, please go to our  Donate Page and give any amount you choose. Thank you!
