Epic Rides ...A good day on the bike


Ride. El Tour de Tucson.

With more than 9,000 riders in attendance celebrating 31 years of cycling tradition, El Tour de Tucson is one of the largest and longest-running cycling events in America. El Tour welcomes everyone from beginners to professionals with four distances (111, 85, 60 and 42 miles) across more than 100 miles of bike lanes and breathtaking Sonoran Desert landscape.

This year, Atlantic magazine voted Tucson #1 overall city with the "Most Bikeable Neighborhoods", making it as great for casual riders and commuters as it is for dedicated roadies. El Tour also benefits the community, having raised $1.6 million in 2011 for dozens of charities. This year's edition is happening on Saturday, November 23. Register before November 16 and avoid the final fee increase!

#24HOP Registration < 100 Spots Remain

Registration for the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo Presented by Tucson Medical Center is almost as full as the family refrigerator on Thanksgiving Day. Don't spend turkey day stuffing your sorrows with leftovers because your team missed the opportunity to ride mountain bikes in the mystical Sonoran Desert on Presidents Weekend.

Arizona High School MTB League Victorious

H.G. Wells once said, "When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race." If only he could have seen hundreds of high school kids riding mountain bikes. Epic Rides congratulates the Arizona High School MTB League - a member of NICA - on a hugely successful inaugural season.

"We've had an outstanding season with great support and enthusiasm from student-athletes, coaches, families and volunteers," said league executive director, Mike Perry. "We are especially proud to have established 28 teams spanning the state in the series this year, and are looking forward to developing an even stronger following of passionate riders in the future."

S.D.M.B. 'Pint Night' - Yetman Wash Reroute

With the help of the Sonoran Desert Mountain Bicyclists, navigating the ever-challenging Yetman Wash will soon be a distant memory; or welcomed option. A multi-use singletrack re-route project is slated to be complete by Mid-January, and last night SDMB held a Pint Night to raise $3,000 for a required cultural resource survey before the re-route can be built.

"We are really impressed with the response from the community in support of this project," said SDMB president, Zach MacDonald. "Arizona Bicycle Experts will be sponsoring our first Yetman event this Sunday, November 17."
