Tour de T1D - Cycling for Type 1 Diabetes

Tour de T1DTM 2022

The Tour de T1DTM 2022 preparations are underway! This year will be the 5th running of this fantastic event. It will take place on September 25th at the same location as the last few years, The Heights Ski and Country Club in the gorgeous Horseshoe Valley.

This year will see some additions to make it even more accessible to a wide range of participants. There will be a gravel / trail route along the trails of the Copeland Forest reached directly from The Heights’ parking lot allowing riders to access the route without going on the road. We will add a cutoff removing the Warminster climb for those who want the length of the 55K route but just want a little less climbing for their legs.

Fundraising Bike Ride

Please remember this even has been developed to raise awareness of Type 1 Diabetes and raise funds for the Youth Diabetes Clinic at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in Barrie where they care for over 200 families and youths living with T1D.

The registration fee allows us to deliver a great event for you to enjoy but it is important to start individual participant fundraising pages as this will be directed to the Clinic. We do not mandate an amount but highly encourage each rider to raise a minimum of $250. Challenge each other to see who can raise the most!

Please return to this site for updates as we will provide important details as we get closer to the event.

Bring your friends, enjoy a great day of riding and help us provide help to families and youth living with Type 1 Diabetes!

See you in September!!!

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.
