TUCSON, Ariz. — A big change is coming to this year's El Tour de Tucson.

The event's 75-mile ride has been eliminated completely.

El Tour de Tucson's organizer Perimeter Bicycling Association of American, Inc. provided this statement Friday:

"After much discussion, we have decided to streamline the overall event and part of that is eliminating the 75-mile ride. If you have registered already for that ride, we will call you personally to place you in either the 50-mile or 100-mile ride. We appreciate your participation, and know that we are as excited as you are about El Tour de Tucson and its future. Thank you for your patience."

The 2019 El Tour de Tucson takes place Nov. 23, 2019.
