    All riders welcome! All wheels welcome!

    Have fun with this once-a -year opportunity to support our research program!
    Ride virtually with family, classmates, friends, and the APBD Community!

    Help us meet our goal of 100 riders on our team!

    All registrants will receive a printable Tour de Friends riding bib. Whenever you’re ready, take a selfie and email it to for sharing!

    Looking forward to seeing you on the virtual ride!
