le Tour de Femme is a women's only full-metric century, half-metric century and fifteen-mile bicycle ride October 13th, 2018 in Cary, N.C. The Grab My Wheel event benefits two local charities, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and the Rex Heathcare Foundation's Angel Fund
The mission of our all women's ride is to raise awareness and funding for cancer research and survivorship programs, plus encourage and support women to explore the sport of cycling.
New for 2018 - Virtual Riders!
New for the 2018 le Tour de Femme, we have a Virtual Rider option! Over the years, we have had the privilege of getting to know several supporters of le Tour de Femme that have always wanted to participate but, due to where they live or other reasons, have never been able to be a "rider" in the actual event. This year, we are going to change that! As a virtual rider, you will receive a tour T-shirt, your own personal fund raising page and will be eligible for all the same fund raising incentives as traditional riders!

The people of le Tour de Femme
New this year is an incredible gift from an incredibly talented le Tour de Femme participant and photographer, Catherine Davis. She has offered to help us spotlight fellow participants, volunteers or supporters throughout the year. We love to share the stories of the women and people who make this event special and hope you’ll enjoy meeting some of them and hearing a bit more about their stories.
