Cochise County Cycling Classic

Cochise County Cycling Classic

October 07 2017
Douglas, Arizona, USA

Cochise Classic has been called the jewel of Perimeter Bicycling’s events as it offers the most scenic route around southeastern Arizona where the west is still wild.  Cyclists  in all distances start and finish in Douglas, Arizona.  This adventurous ride has experienced a variety of weather conditions including mild temperature and breezes to outright heat and wind on rural roads in open range (watch out for cattle!).  It’s a ride to be prepared for anything while you’re having fun!

In 2017, the start/finish line for the 165, 95, 47 and 27- mile events remains at the Cochise County Fairgrounds.  The long stretch of road before the finish makes the first finishes exciting.  The Finish Line Fiesta will be adjacent to the finish line so everyone can view the finishes and enjoy food, drink and we’re working on some entertainment.

On Friday, October 6, come to the Expo from 2:00-9:00 pm and the Pre-Ride Party from 6:30-8:00 pm for a complimentary spaghetti dinner all at the Cochise County Fairgrounds – meet the Dedication Recipient!  All your new and old friends will be there!

Bring your motor home or tent and stay at the Fairgrounds.
Space is limited contact Cochise County Fairgrounds at 520-364-3819 for more information. Showers are also available at the Fairgrounds for cyclists after the ride.

Participants in the 165-mile event MUST be supported by a crew with a vehicle.  Though there are time stations where cyclists/crews must check in during the ride, there are NO AID STATIONS for this adventure so a crew is a must to supply food, water and moral support.  Be sure to review the rules regarding night riding if you choose this distance.

Participants in the 95, 47 and 27-mile events will get to take advantage of AID STATIONS along the route supplied with water, fruit and snacks.  Nutritional food and electrolyte replacements must be supplied by the cyclist.  Personal support crews are not allowed on these two distances.

The Cochise Classic benefits Douglas ARC. The mission of Douglas ARC is to support and involve people with developmental disabilities within the Douglas community.
