You Must Familiarize Yourself With All Event Rules.

Some notable ones are below, please read the rest HERE :

  • Aerobars are prohibited in all Perimeter Bicycling events except the 165-mile distance of the Cochise County Cycling Classic. If they are on your bike, please remove them prior to the ride.
  • CPSC-approved helmet required to be worn properly.
  • Earbuds in BOTH ears are prohibited.  One earbud is allowed but is discouraged so that you may be more aware of your surroundings.
  • Human powered vehicles only – no motor/assisted (gas or electric) bicycles.
  • The course closes at 5:00pm. After 5:00pm you will be SAG’d to the finish line.  Aid stations close BEFORE 5:00pm following a schedule that allows cyclists to finish by 5:00pm.  If you fall behind the closing schedule, you may lose route support.  Please be mindful of this when you choose your ride distance!
  • No registration on ride day except for Fun Ride
