Sycuan Resort & Casino will sponsor cycling fundraiser for diabetes

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) San Diego chapter has announced that the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation, owners of the Sycuan Resort & Casino in El Cajon, is among the sponsors for the ADA’s 2013 Tour de Cure, a cycling fundraiser on Saturday morning, April 20 at Torrey Pines High School.
At this year’s ride, the 13th annual, more than 1,250 riders are expected to help raise more than $530,000 in donations for diabetes research and programs and services for people with diabetes. Five routes of 7, 30, 50, 75 and 100 miles will be offered for rides of all ages and skill levels. Routes will include oceanfront sights as well as backcountry roads that are popular with cyclists. People who have diabetes will be recognized with a “Red Rider” jersey to wear on the day of the event. For registration information about the 2013 Tour de Cure, visit
