The Tucson Medical Center El Tour de Tucson is this Saturday, and the deadline to register online is today. If you miss the deadline, you can register in person at the Expo/Packet Pickup, Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., at the Tucson Convention Center.
El Tour is a bicycling event for cyclists of all ages and abilities. Race officials say the event brings in more than 9,000 riders from around the world, contributing up to $30 million to the local economy and more than $48 million for nonprofit organizations. Organizers say 50 nonprofits will benefit from the proceeds, and Easter Seals Blake Foundation will be the primary beneficiary this year.
