“I’m excited to be part of this ride as it’s the first virtual group ride for El Tour, the iconic ride based in Tucson, Arizona. This ride will be for one hour and set as a non-drop/keep everyone together ride. What that means is that no matter how hard riders work on our group ride they won’t be able to pull away, keeping the group together. During the ride we can chat to each other and discuss what fellow cyclists, elite trainers, and other pro cyclists do for training when they need to stay inside. There is a cap to the ride of 100 people so make sure to follow me asap so I can get you invited to the ride. Let’s have some fun! “The length of the program will be four weeks, excluding the July 4 weekend. So the dates are June 27, July 11, July 18 and July 25.Ride on with El Tour as we get ready for our event on Nov. 21, 2020!
