Welcome to America’s Longest Perimeter Bicycling Event!
With heavy hearts, we will not be producing the event this year.
Participation has been declining over the last few years which resulted in
unsustainable loses. We hope to bring it back in 2019.
Please tell us that you will ride in 2019 so that we can bring it back.
Thank you for a great 30 years of riding
where the “west is still wild”
We hope you will find a way to support Douglas ARC
who will miss the funds raised by Cochise Classic.
