Before you lock up the bike for the winter months or need a warm up for the Tour de Tucson, join us for the Tour de New River 2013! The event will take place on November 2, 2013.
Check out the Road Bike/MTB Duathlon - The Schizophrenic Du - If you like to ride both and can't decide this is the ride for you. Also this year we have added a 10 mile intermediate route and a Hike up Pinnacle Peak! Something for everyone.
Tour de New River is an annual bike tour event in Arizona that rallies together cyclists from a variety of different backgrounds and experiences in order to bring an end to the cycle of poverty in Africa. The event partners with local agencies throughout Africa.
By getting involved and riding your bike, you will make a lasting impression on the families and children throughout the countries in Africa! All entry fees and additional donations given or raised by individual bike riders will go to help these communities by:
? Improving the quality of education for hundreds of children
? Increasing the level of food nutrition for families
? Bringing awareness to health and hygiene issues
? Liberating women from the bonds of tribal practices
Now is your chance to ride and participate in your favorite hobby, but more importantly to impact lives in Africa through your partnership with us!
We hope to see you on the route!
