Who we are


Every year, Cure Chasers crisscross the US to raise funds in the fight against acute and chronic diseases. Riding for Leaukemia and Lymphoma Society in Lake Tahoe; LaCrosse Wisconsin for JDRF; Indianapolis for the 24 Foundation, the American Diabetes Association and Bike MS; as well as many other rides here in the Midwest. Some even made the daring trip to take on Mount Mitchell in North Carolina, where everything you know about yourself and riding a bike are challenged to the core.

Almost every weekend starting in late March through October, Cure Chasers take to the streets of central Indiana to train, fund raise and create awareness for our cause.

At Cure Chasers, our mission is - through cycling - to promote the power of health and fitness and support non-profit organizations who are working on cures and treatments for acute and chronic diseases.

This year we will RIDE for our health and to create awareness. We will FIGHT for those battling various diseases and cancer. We will work for a CURE by raising funds and providing financial support to organizations who care for patients and their families and for those who are working on critical research for these conditions.

    Just a few brave souls made it out Tuesday 4/10/18 for first Blue Tuesday of the year.  Big shout out to team member who painted the Dan Henrys (road marks) that give turn by turn directions plus warn of sudden stops and hazards in the road.  

    I would like to point out that there are various pot holes on Tuesdays route (it is Indiana after all), which made me realize just how important is is to communicate while on the road.  

    The first rider in a group should call out the road hazards - "road kill", "water", "debris", and of course "hole".  Then other riders should repeat that message, as the 5th rider in a pack may not hear the initial call out.  But that 5th rider could hear the 4th rider call it out.  Even in a group of 2 riders, I repeat the message so the other rider knows I heard them.

    Some May rides to look forward to, I should be at most:

    Sun 4/29/18 - CIBA Mann Rd Meander.  If you ever wanted to abandon our Tuesday night route and explore the side roads, now's your chance.

    Sat 5/5/18 - CIBA Eastern Brown County Meander.  Relaxed ride thru hill country.  Plan on eating lunch on the route and dinner afterwards to make a day of it.

    Sun 5/13/18 - CIBA Crankin' Round Cordry/Sweetwater.  50ish miles but hilly for those of you not participating in Mt. Mitchell this year.

    Mon 5/14/18 - Mt. Mitchell and Marion.  Start in Spartanburg South Carolina and end in Mt Mitchell North Carolina over 100 miles and 10,000' elevation, or 72 and 5,000 if stop at base of Mt @ Marion.  See event registration for details.

    Sat 5/19/18 - Sun 5/20/18 - TOSRV.  Started in 1962, yearly Tour of Ohio Scioto River Valley.  Just south of Columbus OH.  Ride 105 miles south & 3500 ft elevation 1 day, stay the night, then ride back next day.

    Sat 5/26/17 (Memorial Weekend) - Horsey Hundred.  Rolling hills of horse country in Georgetown/Lexington KY.  Best roads I ride every year.  Up to Century ride with 5000' elevation Saturday, Friday and Sunday optional rides too.

    Mon 5/28/18 (Memorial Day) - Give Hope Ride.  YMCA fundraiser in Fishers.  Not many rides have a fly-over at the start.  Free BBQ in Cicero along the 50 mile ride, shorter options available.
