You will ride (at your chosen pace!) within a 2 mile radius of downtown searching for the objects,and enjoying the beautiful fall weather with friends. With all the objects in hand, you will head to the finish with a puzzle to solve.

When & Where
El Grupo Youth Cycling
Our mission is to empower youth through bicycles.
El Grupo supports empowering over 600 youth annually that are underserved or simply uninspired and giving them something positive to be excited about, as well as self-confidence.
Through our programs (Team El Grupo & Youth Empowering Youth outreach), we are getting youth on bikes, and they in turn are teaching, inspiring and empowering other youth to ride, enjoy and love bikes. El Grupo uses the bicycle as a means for positive development for at-risk or underserved youth that would not otherwise have healthy, skill-building, and goal-oriented activities in their lives. Through donations from the community, El Grupo provides all bikes, equipment, clothing and gear to youth.
We embrace all forms of cycling from road and mountain bike racing to bicycle touring and daily commuting.
El Grupo is developing the next generation of active, healthy, and community-minded cycling enthusiasts and leaders in Tucson.
