March has arrived and that means time is running out for Red Riders to register and be guaranteed a jersey for the Kennebunks Tour de Cure.
The event that begins and ends at Wells Reserve at Laudholm takes place June 9. Red Riders are the reason for the Tour. They are people with diabetes who raise money for the American Diabetes Association and ride for their cause.
If you hope to be a Red Rider, register by March 20 and then raise at least $200. Those who raise $1,000 by May 1 will also earn a pair of Red Rider cycling shorts.
Tour de Cure participants can choose from a 5K, 25K, 50K, 100K metric century or 100-mile century ride.
