Tour de Blue Schedule

Join Us on the
  9th Annual Tour de Blue Bicycle Ride
Saturday  April 30, 2016  

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 Health Foundation and Birmingham Bicycle Company, and is part of the Alabama Backroads Century Series.

What:   There will be several exciting cycling routes offered for the 2016 Tour de Blue, with four ride options (107, 76, 48 & 13 miles). The terrain is rolling, and for the three longer distance rides, there are several challenging climbs. 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. Cost is $50 (with discounts for early registration on Active.com) for the three longer rides, and $25 for the 13-mile short option. The cost includes an event t-shirt and lunch provided by Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q.

We are also offering a newly designed Tour de Blue jersey for purchase. This jersey, made by Hincapie, 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 2016 Edition of the Tour de Blue will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2016. Registration will open at 6:30 AM. The 107, 76 & 48-mile riders will start at 8 AM. The 13-mile riders will start at 8:30 AM.

Where:  The starting venue for the Tour de Blue will be Moody, Alabama, located just outside Birmingham. We will post additional details soon, so please check back here often.

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 will soon be 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. Also, please consider volunteering your time; you can sign up for one of the volunteer positions by logging onto VolunteerSpot or by contacting Jennie Alley, our Volunteer Coordinator, at medplanjda[at]aol.com.
