What's Included

Taken from the Italian version of Gran Fondo: El Grupo's Fall Fondo is a Fundraising ride with planned routes around the beautiful west and northwest sides of Tucson. Whether you choose the 45ish or 80ish mile option, this Fall Fondo is designed to be a non-competitive, enjoyable ride that you do at your own pace. There will be a sag stop on each route with delectable snacks to whet your appetite. When you finish back at the clubhouse, there will be a full-fledged Festa (Italian for party!) underway with food, beer, a raffle, and music. Fall Fondo Riders will receive a bag with an official Fall Fondo t-shirt, food and beer tokens, and great swag. If family members cannot make it on the ride, invite them to the after-party where food and beer can be purchased to fuel the jolly ambiance. El Grupo's Fall Fondo is a fundraiser to support El Grupo's youth riders and programs, while also celebrating our two-wheeled lifestyle! A portion of your registration may be tax-deductible. El Grupo is a 501c3 non-profit.

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.
