Mission Statement

Perimeter Bicycling is dedicated to making Tucson the nation's best bicycling city. In 2004, the League of American Bicyclists (LAB) awarded Tucson one of three silver-level cities in terms of the city's commitment to provide safe facilities for bicyclists, and to encourage bicycling for fun, fitness and transportation. In 2006, the LAB upgraded Tucson and East Pima County to one of six gold-level cities. To date, only Davis, California has received the platinum-level award. Perimeter Bicycling along with volunteers and staff from the City of Tucson and Pima County continue to work together as the Platinum Challenge Steering Committee to garner top honors.

In addition to fund-raising events, Perimeter Bicycling has established five premier funds through which businesses and individuals may/can support worthy causes within our community. Contributions may be made to any one of these funds by sending a check to Perimeter Bicycling Association of America, Inc., specifying your choice of fund. All donations are tax-deductible.

The Global Sports Alliance (GSA) - USA Fund supports the worldwide EcoFlag Movement in the U.S., spear-headedby sports enthusiasts, to secure a healthy environment for future generations.

The Brad P. Gorman Memorial Fund supports projects that make our streets safer including the creation of bike trails and the education of motorists and cyclists alike on sharing our roads.

The Handcycle Physically-Challenged Athlete's Fund sends handcyclists to national and international competitions and develops handcycling programs for physically-challenged youths and adults.

The Matthew Preston Memorial Fund provides free and/or low-cost housing for University of Arizona graduate students studying health or medicine.

The Perimeter Bicycling Fund helps ensure the continuance of Perimeter Bicycling, its cycling events and associated projects, especially El Tour de Tucson. Contributions to the Perimeter Fund go to the promotion of all four cycling events which help raise funds for other worthy non-profit agencies as well as on-going education and advocacy efforts to promote safe cycling and a healthy lifestyle.

Our motto: "One learns more by going around than by cutting across."


Perimeter Bicycling Association of America, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit, tax exempt organization responsible for the production and promotion of four major cycling events: El Tour de Tucson, El Tour de Phoenix, Cochise County Cycling Classic and Tour of the Tucson Mountains. Other Perimeter Bicycling events include: an annual Bike, Fitness & Health Expo, Indoor El Tour, Wellness Conference, El Tour Golf Classic, El Tour Walk/Run series and Kids & Family Fun Rides for Tour of the Tucson Mountains and El Tour de Tucson.

Each Perimeter Bicycling event raises funds for non-profit charitable agencies. Perimeter Bicycling was established in 1986, during El Tour's third year, and over its 22-year history, has helped raise over $25 million for local and national charitable organizations.
