El Tour Road Closures are set, here’s what you need to be prepared for Nov. 19

The Banner – University Medicine 39th El Tour de Tucson is soon approaching – less than two weeks – and we want to let everyone know of one of the important parts of the ride: road closures for the day of the ride, Nov.19.

“It’s important we let the Tucson community and its surrounding areas to the south –
Green Valley & Sahuarita – know what roads will be closed during El Tour on November
19,” said TJ Juskiewicz said. “We want to make sure everyone is prepared for our road closures as they plan their
day. Our ride begins at 7 a.m. and goes to 4 p.m. with roads being closed at various
times. Those times are listed on the list we’ve sent …
“Safety is important for our cyclists as well as the automobile drivers who will need to
get around our route, now in its second year.”

Please plan accordingly.

Here is a download of the roads along with the document.
