Sponsoring Team BICAS

Thank you for taking time to consider sponsoring Team BICAS. If sponsoring Team BICAS fits with your marketing plans, please contact eltour@bicas.org.

Team BICAS seeks to lower barriers for those who want to participate in recreational road cycling and to build community and relationships between individuals from disparate backgrounds while raising funds to support BICAS through participation in the 40th El Tour de Tucson. Your support helps Team BICAS to fulfill these goals on the way to a brighter, happier, more accessible and more sustainable transportation future for Tucson.

An introduction to Team BICAS

Begun as an initiative by a BICAS board member in 2016, Team BICAS’ primary goals are to:

  • Create a community of riders who support one another’s goals;
  • Foster friendships between team members as they achieve their riding and fundraising goals;
  • Make recreational road cycling as accessible as possible to all who wish to participate and
  • Raise funds to support BICAS’s core programs (Community Tools, Education, Art and WomenTrans*Femme).

A team jersey is an important and traditional incentive for riders to participate as fundraisers in El Tour de Tucson. Team BICAS seeks to partner with select local Tucson businesses to create a jersey for Team BICAS’ participation in the 40th El Tour de Tucson. Sponsorship proceeds in excess of those required for jerseys are earmarked to pay registration fees for those fundraising riders who may not have the financial means to register for the 40th El Tour de Tucson.
