November 11 – 18, 2012
Ride with us in the 30th annual El Tour de Tucson, one of the largest and most scenic perimeter cycling events in North America.
The Ranch is truly the perfect spot for preparation, a seamless ride-day experience and recovery. The ride comes right into the Ranch across a dry creek bed – one of El Tour's two famous foot crossings – and out through the resort's front gate! With Canyon Ranch exercise physiologist and past El Tour winner Doug Loveday, M.S., and other Canyon Ranch professionals, you'll have the world-class expertise and support you need as you prepare to meet your goal.
