El Tour de Mesa Dedication Recipients Announced

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Drum roll please … Holualoa Companies El Tour de Mesa presented by Pierson Construction Corporation is dedicated Radar Matt & Sharon Newman-Matt – Champions for Cycling and Advocacy. These avid cyclists from the Phoenix have elevated their enthusiasm for cycling as advocates for cycling safety and education. They readily share their experience and knowledge as League Cycling Instructors, former board members of the Coalition of Arizona Bicyclists (CAzB), and Perimeter Bicycling Bike Patrol leaders.

Since 1995, they have patrolled a combined 58 Perimeter events – El Tour de Mesa, Tour of the Tucson Mountains and El Tour de Tucson – 28 for Radar, and 30 for Sharon. Their commitment to helping riders extends off-road where they serve as volunteer trail rangers in South Mountain Park. Sharon continues to develop her skills and is training to become a bike mechanic when she retires from her career as a respiratory therapist. Radar and Sharon have given back quietly, but they have given back big. Come out to honor them at a special El Tour Dedication Dinner on Thursday, April 12.
