Charity · Community · Health & Wellness

Charity, community, health and wellness are what Perimeter Bicycling and El Tour are all about.

They all go hand-in-hand when it comes to building awareness for a bike ride that has been part of the Tucson community for nearly four decades.

As we head into the 38th anniversary of El Tour de Tucson, Perimeter Bicycling wants to emphasize 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.

In 2019, we reached a significant milestone in being the facilitator for helping charities go over the $100 million mark through Perimeter’s 37 years of charity work. In 2019, charities raised more than $5.8 million, moving the overall total to $101 million since El Tour started in 1983.

El Tour has come a long way, given in that 1983 with fewer than 200 cyclists, El Tour raised $4,500 in its first ride.

Since then, more than 270,000 cyclists have ridden in Perimeter events. El Tour, of course, has grown considerably since its inception, but the message has long been constant: charity, community, health and wellness through a strong and committed group of nonprofits, thousands of dedicated cyclists and volunteers who know the power of teamwork.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

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.
