Join Us for the 7th Annual Tour de Blue!
April 26, 2014
The Tour de Blue century ride starts and finishes at the Red Diamond corporate campus in Moody, Alabama (just outside Birmingham). There are several distance options (Century, 75 & 50 miles), and we anticipate adding a short option this year. Funds raised from the event support the Urology Health Foundation‘s prostate cancer screening and awareness efforts across Alabama. Not only does this ride benefit a great cause, but it is a fun event as well. It is non-competitive, you get to cycle with others and make new friends, and it offers one of the great scenic rides in this state.
Your Participation Will:
- Help educate men and their families about the importance of early detection for prostate cancer
- Help men at greatest risk in Alabama get access to free prostate cancer screenings
- The Urology Health Foundation is a locally based non-profit, and your dollars will stay here in Alabama.

Event starts at 8 AM
Early bird registration discounts are available on Active.com.

Bicycle Mechanics class
For years there was only one Bike coop around, working hard out of their basement space 2 nights a week to provide birmingham with used parts, bike workshop, and people to help fix or build your bicycle. This was the Bici coop, a super fantastic place to know of no matter how many bikes you own. I enjoyed many nights their just digging through the parts bins for buried treasures! If you have never been now's your chance!
On Friday Dec, 13th our friends at Bici Coop are having their Christmas party. There you will be able to meet the 2014 board and enjoy your tummy to free beer and cookies! Not to mention chat it up with a bunch of bike lovers. If you can make delicious cookies then bring some so we don't run out! The shop is at 1211 28th st south Birmingham AL 35205 right off of Highland Park!
