St. Luke's Hospital created the Tour de Wellness to promote healthy living practices and raise awareness of the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle. The event raises funds to support St. Luke's health and wellness outreach programs. These programs impact the lives of more than 40,000 residents in our community each year that could be at risk for or are already living with a chronic health condition. Chronic conditions - such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes - are the leading causes of death in the United States. Chronic conditions impact one out of every ten Americans and account for 81 percent of hospital admissions, 91 percent of prescriptions, and 76 percent of physician office visits. Through health education and screenings, St. Luke's Hospital is working to change this outlook.
Tour de Wellness organizers ensure each route is designed for every level of participant-from the beginner to advanced cyclist. The routes are adequately staffed with bike techs, police, medics and volunteers to ensure the safety of every participant.
Teams are welcome! We encourage participants to recruit a few or a few dozen of their closest family, friends or colleagues and join St. Luke's Hospital to celebrate wellness and raise funds for outreach programs that benefit the St. Louis community. Also, companies can support and encourage health and wellness by championing employees' rides. It is a great way to provide a fun and safe activity for employees, while building camaraderie!
We ride in the Tour de Wellness for fun and exercise. It is something that gets us together and outdoors without phones!

Tour de Wellness is one of my favorite rides of the year! It is located in the beautiful Chesterfield area that has some of the best cycling scenery around. The ride has great SAG support and a really great meal after the ride! The rest stops are well stocked and there are people cheering all along the route! I try to get all my friends to join me on this ride. Tour de Wellness really sets the bar high for cycling events! Please join me this year!
