El Tour’s Entry Fee is comprised of three elements: Processing Fee, Registration Fee and Minimum Contribution for all riders.  The Processing Fee goes up over time, please see the chart below. You will have an opportunity to raise more funds for  our primary beneficiary after you initially register.

2015 El Tour de Tucson PRocessing Fees
In 2015, we return to our traditional fee structure:
Fees are comprised of three elements:  Processing Fee, Registration Fee and Contribution.  Everyone pays a processing fee and contribution.  If you elect to collect a minimum contribution of $200 (& more),  your registration fee is FREE, paid by the primary beneficiary.  Check out the chart below.

You can pay JUST THE PROCESSING FEE NOW to get your entry processed.  Once that is paid, you have until you pick up your packet (info here) to pay the balance.  The online program requires you to pay Level 1 (see below) in full when you register.  If you’d like to register now and pay just the processing fee now, please select level 2.  We hope you will collect the $200 in contributions, but at packet pickup you can pay the balance at level 1.  Quirk of the system… sorry for the confusion.


Looking for the FUN RIDE?  Fees;  $15 per individual or for a group of four or more $10 per person. Fun Ride details HERE

To be eligible for awards and prizes, all contributions by main event cyclists (104, 75, 55, or 40 miles) must be received by Perimeter Bicycling by Friday, November 20, 2015.

WIN THE TREASURE CHEST: The person who raises the most money for our primary beneficiary by Friday, November 20 is awarded the Treasure Chest with gifts and prizes valued over $3,000. To qualify, a minimum of $3,000 must be raised and turned in to Perimeter Bicycling by Friday, November 20, 2015 for main event cyclists.

+ The system is optimized for Internet Explorer.  Others work but can look a little funky.
The system does not work with iphones or smart phones.
