Welcome to Perimeter Bicycling and El Tour de Tucson.

We are now entering our 39th year in preparing for what we think is one of the premier bicycling events in the country.

We hope you participate in this year’s event scheduled for November 19, 2022.  You won’t be alone given that annually over 7,000 cyclists participate in the renowned and popular event.

Did you know that El Tour de Tucson enables nonprofit, charitable agencies to raise funds for their respective organizations?  Learn about their programs and sign up to ride on their teams here.

Since 1983, Perimeter Bicycling events have raised over $100 million for local and international charitable organizations.  This significant milestone – a target of ours for some time – was reached after we helped 35 non-profits raise a collective $5.8 million in 2019.

Why stop there?

We wouldn’t be in year 38 if it weren’t for the hard-working non-profits and all involved, including the hundreds of volunteers, generous sponsors, city and county officials, and of course, cyclists.

We are here to say “thank you” to all involved in what we expect will be another great year of cycling in and around Tucson on November 20, 2021.

El Tour Countdown!


TOUR DE TUCSON is checked off my bucket list!!!! What a great experience and I placed in the top 800!!! It’s not about winning it, it’s about finishing it!

Tucson is an incredible city and beautiful location for a large cycling event. El Tour brings together cyclists from all over the world and promotes cycling, personal fitness, and community engagement.

El Tour de Tucson 2019! I think this is becoming an annual family tradition. So much fun!

Amazing -We were able to raise community awareness, serve our charity and have our multi-generational family get addicted to a new sport- cycling!!

El Tour is a fantastic experience and celebration of Tucson’s cycling community.

Loved the ride. This is the 18th time I’ve done the ride and hope it comes back next year bigger and better.

@GabbyGiffords and I had a great time riding in El Tour de Tucson. I can’t think of a better representation of Tucson than thousands of people coming together outdoors to help raise money for the causes they care about.
