I was at the 8:30 a.m. start off for the Fun Rides (1/4 mile, 5 mile, 10 mile) at Armory Park in downtown Tucson on 6th Avenue. Although this is El Tour’s 30th anniversary, I’ve only been volunteering at their Bike Fitness & Health Expo for 10 years since Sydney Clanagan (age 11) died back in 2003. Sweet Sydney was a Tu Nidito child having been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and I officially joined her family when she did the 1/4 mile Fun Ride in 2002 in her wheelchair. After Sydney died and her father, former Marana Councilmember Russell Clanagan rode in the then-109 mile El Tour ride, I’ve been helping with this fun event, especially registering children and their families for these rides. The memory of sweet Sydney is what keeps me volunteering for El Tour. (I’m a bike rider but not up to the fitness & quality of El Tour riders. The most I’ve ever done was 30 miles).
Congratulations to Perimeter Bicycling for another successful El Tour de Tucson.
