The Tour de Scottsdale is a cycling event dedicated to the environment. Enjoy spectacular views of Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree, and Fountain Hills as you circumnavigate the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. When completed, the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, located east of DC Ranch, will be the nations largest urban land preserve. Every mile benefits the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy.
