Welcome to le Tour de Femme

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 8, 2016. This is our eleventh year of bringing women to North Carolina from all over the country to fight cancer. We hope you will use this web site to inspire yourself and others to join us in October.

Ladies Ride Status for 8/24/2016

This is what you call perfect riding weather! Our friends at WRAL are calling for mostly sunny with temps in the upper 80's! With a forcast like that, we are planning to ride at 6:00pm. Hoping to see everyone at the Apex Nature Park for tonight's ride! If this is your first time coming to the new location, we are NOT at the soccer fields area. Keep driving down Evans Rd till you reach 2600, the Nature Park.

Our Mission

The mission of our women's ride is to raise funds for cancer survivorship programs and empower women through cycling. The ride is open to all female cyclists, at all skill levels, to participate in a ride of 15 miles, 31.2 miles or 62.4 miles in length. The post-ride celebration allows participants to celebrate their accomplishments while enjoying refreshments with one another and sponsors.

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.
