Richard J. DeBernardis, President and CEO of Perimeter Bicycling, recently announced that University Medical Center 28th El Tour de Tucson presented by Diamond Ventures is dedicated to the legendary John Howard. This year's official dedication is Thursday, November 18th at the Tucson Convention Center.
As a long-time participant, John says, "El Tour has always been one of my favorite events. It supports some important Tucson charities, giving back to the community and brings cyclists together for a day of fun and adventure. El Tour typifies what cycling is all about. Everybody wins, we ride, we have fun, stay in shape and community services reap the financial rewards. I'm humbled to be a part of the mix."
