About the Ride:

Join us for the 11th Tour du Rouge from the Bayou City to the Crescent City. Last year’s ride was a huge success and we’ve made changes to improve it. But don’t take our word, read some of the comments from last year’s Facebook page or watch this video of a prior Tour.

This six-day, push-your-limits ride along the Gulf Coast is limited to 100 riders in 2018. But it isn’t all be hard work, each night you will enjoy good food and entertainment with your fellow riders.

The Cause

Your participation in the Tour du Rouge supports The Arc of Greater Houston.

  • The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.
  • The Arc acts to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their parents, siblings, family members and other concerned members of the public have meaningful opportunities to inform and guide the direction of the organization’s advocacy, including determining policy and positions on important issues. The Arc strives for diversity in its leadership, as well as in all facets of the work of the organization.
  • The Arc leads by articulating a positive vision for the future of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and catalyzes public and private support in realization of that vision through carefully planned and well-executed goals, strategies and actions.
  • The Arc represents the public interest, supporting and acting with and on behalf of all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families regardless of the type of disability or membership in The Arc.
