The North Shore Tour de Cure is more than just a cycling ride. It's a life-changing event. The 2019 North Shore Tour de Cure returns to the famous Topsfield Fairgrounds for a day full of fun and excitement where riders will join forces in the fight to Stop Diabetes® and raise critical funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy in support of the American Diabetes Association.

The four routes are designed to appeal to riders of all ages and skill levels.  Enjoy scenic views of traditional New England landscapes and the charming countryside on a memorable ride through the North Shore of Massachusetts.  Our epic 100 mile Gran Fondo offers two timed segements - a time trial and KOM with prizes for the top male and female finishers in each! This ride is challenging and difficult with elevation both early and later in the ride.
