Tour de T1D - Cycling for Type 1 Diabetes

Tour de T1DTM 2023


The Tour de T1D 2023 has officially launched and is ready for you to sign up for this year’s ride!

Join us Sunday the 24th of September 2023 as we ride for the 6th year in support of Type 1 Diabetes. We are again raising money for the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s Youth Diabetic Clinic. In 2022, we raised $23,005 and hope to surpass that this year with your help!

Over the past 5 years, we have raised $133,000!

The Tour de T1D begins and ends at the Heights Ski and Country Club in Barrie Ontario. The rolling hills and incredible fall colours of Oro-Medonte are the beautiful background for our annual fundraiser.

Come ride or volunteer with us! If you aren’t able to join us this year, please consider donating to help kids and families who live with Type 1 Diabetes.

Tour de T1D - 2021

Who are we?

In 2016, Barrie physicians Drs Darlene Newnham and Richard Goudie's son Lukas was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) at the age of 14.

In 2018, Lukas's parents combined their passion for cycling with their desire to raise awareness and funds to improve the lives of youth with T1D. Since no large scale outdoor cycling event existed in Canada, they created the Tour de T1D. To date, their ride has seen over 300 riders and raised over $80,000.00. Their dream is to see this ride become a recognized annual T1D event drawing riders from all over Canada.

What is Type 1 Diabetes?

T1D is an autoimmune disease for which no cure exists.

It is still considered a lifelong condition managed with insulin via repeated daily injections or an insulin pump providing continuous delivery.
