About This Activity

Now in its 8th year, the Tour de Blue offers cyclists a well-supported springtime riding experience through the scenic countryside of St. Clair and nearby counties in Alabama. This century ride starts and finishes at the Red Diamond Corporate Headquarters in Moody, Alabama (just outside of Birmingham). There will be several exciting cycling routes, with 107, 76, 48 & 13-mile options. The terrain is rolling, and for the three longer distance rides, there are several challenging climbs.The cost includes an event t-shirt and lunch provided by Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q. A Tour de Blue cycling jersey is also available for purchase. The ride benefits the Urology Health Foundation's prostate cancer screening and awareness efforts across Alabama.

The Tour de Blue is part of the Alabama Backroads Century Series, a group of top century rides in the State of Alabama that seeks to encourage participation in each of the rides and the charities they support.
