Back to sunshine and blue skies just in time for El Tour de Tucson! Best of rides to everyone. May the roads be clear, your wheels be fast and your ride be safe.
*Please take note. With the end of our 2019 season fast approaching, ROC will be on “holiday” from December 1st through January 31st. There will be no scheduled rides. Please feel free to create, share and get together whenever and wherever works best for you. Consider using the wicked cool ROR Fitness social networking app for coordinating your rides and meet ups. Thank you for another memorable year!
As a current team member, please also remember to fulfill your commitment to raise and/or donate $250 to El Grupo Youth Cycling no later than December 1st, 2109. With quite a few riders left to donate, we are SO CLOSE to exceeding our goal of $15,000!! Please see and use ROC’s donation link below.
If you haven’t already, please consider utilizing the Arizona State Tax Credit amounts; $400 Single, $800 filing jointly when making your donation this year. Great way to have your tax dollars work for you and for El Grupo Youth Cycling. A tax credit is much different than a tax deduction and puts money in both El Grupo’s pocket and then back into your own. Have questions? Please ask.
Team and Sponsor Donations to Date: With a Goal of $15,000, ROC has raised $12,681 in 2019!! Thank you!!

How to Make a Donation to El Grupo Youth Cycling: Please use and encourage all donors to use Ride On Cycling’s unique donation link above and as found on our team website on the DONATE tab. Please ask donors to include your name as the rider they are “donating on behalf of” so we can readily track your progress against incentives as well as the team’s total donation.
