El tour de Tucson has done more for making Tucson a cycling town with international recognition than any other factor. It has the support of the business community as well as elected officials. If you ride a bike in Tucson, be it on the road, The Loop or single track, you can thank El Tour for laying the groundwork.
As you may have heard, El Tour had some financial troubles and has transitioned to a New Board of Directors and Staff. Working together with local businesses and government El Tour will survive in 2019 for the 37th annual ride. Much of the debt has been retired, but there is still a need for financial support. If you love cycling, if you ride a bike, if you have loved ones who ride, please make a donation to ensure the future of this iconic Tucson event.
