ROC Riders..

Here we are, 16 weeks until the 37th Annual El Tour de Tucson!  With that, let’s work to turn our collective energy towards how we can support each other reach and surpass our individual and team fundraising goals.  Have an idea?  Let’s do it!

Ride Route:  In lieu of the OMSO on Saturday, this week’s ride will be on Sunday and have us celebrating fellow ROCker Karen Schwartz’s birthday with her favorite climb up the mountain.  Join the team on Mt. Lemmon at the Rose Canyon Lake parking lot at 730am for some quality climbing and a “Ride in the Pines”.  Lots of distance options and cool weather to be had.

2019 Fundraising Incentives:  Much like last year, thanks to the generosity of El Grupo Youth Cycling and the good people at Fair Wheel Bikes, below are this year’s team fundraising incentives.

FREE El Grupo Fall Fondo:  First 10 team members who raise or donate $250 or more.  4 spots remaining!
$40 Fair Wheel Bike Gift Card:  Each team member who raises or donates $400 or more but less than $800.
$80 Fair Wheel Bike Gift Card:  Each team member who raises or donates $800 or more but less than $1200.
FREE El Grupo Youth Cycling Kit:  A full El Grupo kit (jersey and bibs) for each team member who raises $1200 or more.
**Team members are eligible for one incentive only.

Team..  As a Qualified Charitable Organization, the incentive amounts align with the $400/single and $800/married Arizona State Tax Credit amounts.  Let’s do our part to help promote and support El Grupo by taking advantage of this “Donate today – Receive the full donation as a State Tax refund” opportunity!

*For questions and more information on this win-win tax credit opportunity, Kate Hiller and I can be available to help.  Thank you!
