About This Organizer

El Grupo is a youth cycling organization that provides youth with experiences that are fun, skill-building, and bike centered, so that they can acquire the self-confidence and leadership skills to be active and healthy members of the community. All youth need a path. Our mission is to empower youth through bicycles.

We aim to instill life-long healthy habits and build character and camaraderie through bicycle riding, racing and outreach. Through our programs, we are getting youth on bikes, and they in turn are teaching, inspiring and empowering other youth to ride, enjoy and love bikes.

Through donations from the community, El Grupo provides all bikes, equipment, clothing and gear to youth who would not otherwise have the opportunities.

Today, El Grupo reaches over 800 youth annually that are underserved or simply uninspired and gives them something positive to be excited about, as well as confidence in themselves. As one youth testimonial confirms: “El Grupo gives me purpose in life. Otherwise, I don’t know where I would be. This is a very good place for me.” El Grupo has served this ongoing role for youth in our community in expanding ways and to a growing number of youth since our founding in 2007. The demand from the community for our programs is only growing.

We are fostering the next generation of active, healthy, and community-minded cycling enthusiasts and leaders in Tucson.
