Whether you are a Spandex-clad speedster, a breezy beach cruiser, or a mountain bike adventurer, this fall is the perfect time to lube up the old chain rings and head out onto the open road. If you’re looking for an endurance event filled with challenging climbs, fast descents and stunning views or a scenic tour of north Scottsdale over false-flat stretches with sweeping views, we have a ride for you with both a 70- and a 30-mile distance. Join us for the Tour de Scottsdale and enjoy the party after the ride on Market Street at DC Ranch. You’ll ride all out. You’ll break away. You’ll shift gears. You’ll sweat. You’ll finish. You will have had the ride of your life.
*Please note there has been a major change to the 70 mile course on Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd, due to construction. Cyclists will continue west on Via linda past Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd, then head north on 108th street towards Cactus Rd. Once they have reached Cactus Rd, cyclists will head west to 100th street and take that north until they reach Thompson Peak Parkway and resume the usual course.
*a portion of the 30-mile course is not supported by police, i.e. cyclists must adhere to the rules of the road.
Start time for the Tour de Scottsdale is 6:30 am for both the 70-mile and 30-mile ride.
Tour de Scottsdale has divided the finish lines for the two events. Please be advised that the last portion of the 30-mile course is still not supported by police and cyclists must adhere to the rules of the road. Furthermore, all participants need to exercise rider responsibility by studying the course and paying attention to course marshals as well as event directional signage.
