On Sunday, October 8th, 2017, North Scottsdale celebrated the 14th Annual Tour De Scottsdale, the community’s signature cycling event. Approximately 1,500 cyclists participated in the 70-mile ride or the 30-mile citizen’s ride that stretches across the Northeastern Valley including north Scottsdale, Rio Verde and Fountain Hills. Each year, the community has seen the charity event grow in popularity as it welcomes predominantly Arizona residents but also riders from as far away as Germany. 100 percent of the proceeds from each Tour De Scottsdale benefit the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and protecting this natural wildlife habitat. To date, the event has raised over $500,000 to support the Conservancy.
