Hello and welcome to the home of the 2016 le Tour de Femme. Grab My Wheel will be holding its annual women's only cycling event, le Tour de Femme, on Saturday October 15, 2016.

Weather Update

As you know, we have been closely tracking the path and expectations for Hurricane Matthew. Based on the concerns about wind and rain that could threaten the safety of our riders and volunteers, we have decided to postpone the 2016 le Tour de Femme event.

You won’t have to wait long though, we are rescheduling for Saturday, October 15 – same time, same place. Packet pick up and Ladies’ Night will be Friday, October 14.

What does this mean? If you are able to join us, October 14 and/or October 15, we are thrilled to have you. The website is getting updated with the ride logistics, but pretty much everything stays the same – just happens one week later than initially expected.

If you are NOT able to join us, which we know will happen for some people and is one thing that has made this decision particularly difficult, we are happy to arrange getting your goody bag, t-shirt and awards to you. (More on that below.)

If you know someone who wanted to attend, but couldn’t, please share the event details with them. Registration will be open until Wednesday, October 12 at 11:50 p.m. ET. And, you can continue to raise money for our great cancer organizations – and earning great awards! Keep fundraising!

What do we need to know from you? Please complete our survey (CLICK HERE) to let us know if you will plan to participate in the event on October 15, and if not, if you need us to coordinate getting your rider packet, goody bag, etc. to you.

Thanks for your patience as we sorted through the details. We are so very thankful for our riders, volunteers, sponsors and supporters!

Will you offer refunds if the event has to be cancelled?
  • No refunds will be issued if the event is cancelled. Why?
    • Your registration fee is used to cover the cost of the event logistics – food, t-shirts, rider bib numbers, insurance, permits, etc. – which are costs that we will have already incurred.
    • All proceeds from the event, as always, will go to the two beneficiaries of the event – Rex Hospital Angel Fund and the Kay Yow Foundation.
If I cannot attend the event on the new date, can I still get my shirt and other schwag?
  • Absolutely! If you cannot attend Ladies’ Night or the event on Saturday, let us know your address, and we will mail your rider packet with t-shirt (and other awards) to you OR leave them at CSH with your name for you to pick up.

le Tour de Femme Beneficiaries

All of the proceeds from le tour de Femme are donated to two local organizations that share Grab My Wheel's mission. Grab My Wheel is proud to support the Rex Healthcare Foundation's Angel Fund and The Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Both organizations work hard in the local community to improve the lives of those fighting cancer. We invite you to learn more about how each organization is making a difference.

Rex Hospital Angel Fund

The Angel Fund is a special fund designed to serve those individuals with unique financial needs as they cope with the hardships associated with their cancer treatment. The goal of this program includes increased access to treatment related needs and improved quality of life.

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women’s cancers through raising funds for scientific research, assisting the underserved, and unifying people for a common cause.

le Tour de Femme Merchandise

For the 2016 le tour de Femme jersey, we are going back to our roots and, at the same time, celebrating our new partnership with the Kay Yow Foundation! We're going PINK! The 2007 jersey, still one of the most popular jerseys, was the first jersey we ever made. Fittingly, we used that 07 jersey as our inspiration for this years jersey.
