How It Works

The JDRF One Ride 2021

The JDRF One Ride is a one of a kind cycling challenge taking place over the month of September from the 1st to the 30th of September. With every turn of your wheels you will be contributing to a world without type 1 diabetes and helping us fund the most promising research towards improving lives and curing T1D. It has been 100 years since the discovery of insulin. With your help, we can make sure we don't wait another century for the next life-changing breakthrough. 

Whether you are just beginning your love of cycling or are an experienced rider, this event allows you to choose a challenge that suits you:


250 KMs


500 KMs

Grand Tour

1,000 KMs

You can ride on the road, at the gym*, or via your smart trainer at home and log your KMs manually or by simply connecting your free Strava account which automatically updates the KMs as you achieve them over the challenge.

*Please follow updated social distancing guidelines and restrictions in your state.

Challenge yourself

Over the month-long event, challenge yourself to achieve the most KMs cycled each week in your cycling category knowing that with every turn of your wheels you will be contributing to a world without type 1 diabetes. Strive for the coveted Malliot Jaune (yellow jersey) and be recognised as leader of the pack by achieving the most KMs or highest funds raised. 

You can also join other One Riders in one of our unique virtual ZWIFT events in the comfort of your home or gym, cycle your local road routes, or do both! Log your KMs how and when you choose and see your name appear on the leaderboard!
