El Tour de Tucson

November 19

2022 will mark the 40th annual edition of the Tour of Tucson, one of Arizona’s largest and longest-running participative events. Held annually the Saturday before Thanksgiving, El Tour is a fundraising ride that features nearly 6,000 cyclists of all ages and abilities from the United States and worldwide. Participants range from novice to professional as they ride either the 100, 57, and 28mile rides. Fun Ride distances are 10, 5, and 1 mile bringing great options for kids and family.  Main event routes feature beautiful landscapes of Tucson and Southern Arizona and the crisp, cool air of the Tucson winter. Of course, mountain ranges and the desert’s signature saguaro cactus are highlighted throughout the route. Course profiles range from flat to rolling or moderately hilly. The 28-mile route is mostly flat, which is great for families and ideal for a first-timers and beginners.

All rides conclude at Armory Park in Downtown Tucson, the location for the day-of-the-event party as well as the two-day packet pickup (Thursday, Friday).

Cyclists collect a commemorative finisher’s medallion based on distance and/or finish time. Conclude your ride at the post-ride party with family and friends at the party complete with music, a Beer Garden, numerous food vendors, El Tour Perimeter Store merchandise, kid’s activities, and the Award Ceremony.

More than 12,000 fans, spectators, and cycling enthusiasts gather to celebrate the weekend that is El Tour de Tucson.
