It's A New Route!
Perimeter Bicycling and El Tour de Tucson are thrilled to start 2021 with unveiling of exciting new ride routes! 100 mile, 57 mile, 28 mile

28 mile route will still start in Marana. Same ride as in past years, but this year once you hit Sunset you will stay on Siverbell.

The 100 and 57 mile routes will engage new parts of the majestic Sonoran desert while we also debut an eBike category into our 28 mile route.

The 100 mile ride will head east from downtown and visit Tucson Landmarks such as the geometric boneyard of the Davis Monthan Air Force Base, the mountainous and saguaro lined vistas of Old Spanish Trail & historic Colossal Cave in El Tour’s first venture into southern Pima County in 38 years.
