Thousands of cyclists from Tucson and beyond are gearing up for the annual Banner-University Medicine El Tour de Tucson – now in its 39th year – which kicks-off Saturday, Nov. 19.

And for the second year in a row, the event’s longest, 102-mile route will bring riders south of Tucson through parts of Green Valley and Sahuarita.
