“Start as early as you can and blare your lights. You are in for a long and intense day of biking. By going early you can avoid traffic. You can plan better century rides in Tucson.”
ROAD BIKING, TUCSON, Arizona – The El Tour de Tucson is one of the most popular one day rides in the USA. Typically, over 9,000 riders of all abilities gather to bike. From the novice to the professional, El Tour de Tucson is quite the Tucson cycling spectacle.
Many cyclists come here to ride the 100 plus mile route on their own. With traffic, it is quite the undertaking. Without the roads being closed, this is one of our least favorite century rides. El Tour takes you around all the way through South Tucson and areas that are not the most cycling friendly. There are better century rides one can plan in Tucson that will be more enjoyable and safe.
