|Tour de Blue: Cycling For Prostate Cancer Awareness|
The Tour de Blue is a bicycle ride that benefits the Urology Health Foundation, a local non-profit organization that provides free prostate cancer screenings to men in Alabama, especially in underserved areas that are at highest risk. The goal is to help raise funds for these screenings and to promote public awareness about the importance of early detection. Prostate cancer will affect 1 in 6 American men during their lifetime, and for African-American men the risk is even higher: 1 in 4.
The 2012 Edition of the Tour de Blue will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2012. The bicycle ride leaves at 8:00 AM from the Birmingham Bicycle Company and meanders through Jefferson, Shelby, and St. Clair counties. There are three ride options (60, 75, and 100 miles). The terrain is rolling with several challenging climbs. The 100-mile route takes riders from the bike shop to the Logan Martin Dam and back. The cost of the ride is $40.00 and includes an event t-shirt. 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. Registration opens at 6:30 AM the day of the ride. Riders are asked to park at the McElwain Baptist Church on Montevallo Road.
