Perimeter Bicycling Association of America, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit, tax exempt organization responsible for the production and promotion of five major cycling events — El Tour de Tucson, El Tour de Mesa, Cochise County Cycling Classic and Indoor El Tour — as well as an annual fall and spring Bicycle, Fitness & Health Expo, El Tour Adventure Walk/Run, and El Tour Fun Rides.
Perimeter Bicycling also supports and promotes El Tour de Mt. Fuji and El Tour de Kusatsu, held annually in Japan. Both events are modeled after El Tour’s concept of cycling in pursuit of wellness.
Each Perimeter Bicycling event enables non-profit, charitable agencies to raise funds for their organizations. Over the past 33 years, Perimeter Bicycling events have raised over $67 million for local and international charitable organizations.
Perimeter Bicycling is dedicated to making Tucson/Pima County the nation’s best bicycling region. In 2008, the League of American Bicyclists (LAB) awarded the Tucson/Pima Eastern Region gold-level status for its commitment to providing safe facilities for bicyclists and its support for bicycling for recreation, fitness and transportation – LAB renewed the region’s gold-level status, Spring 2012.
To date, only Davis, California; Boulder and Ft Collins, CO; Portland, Oregon and Madison, WI have achieved platinum-level. The bar was raised even higher in 2012 this year with the announcement of the diamond level above platinum — no group has been named to this level.
Perimeter Bicycling along with volunteers and staff from the City of Tucson and Pima County continue a concerted effort to achieve top honors.
Perimeter Bicycling has established seven premier funds so businesses and individuals can support the following worthy causes. You may contribute 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.
