The goal of the Verde Valley Rally is to be the best grassroots, community-oriented and family-friendly mountain bike event in Cottonwood, AZ and the Verde Valley.
We are 100% volunteer run and 100% of our net-profits for 2020 go to Verde Valley Cyclist Coalition (VVCC)(501c3), Bikes for Kids program and local trails. The Bikes for Kids program is meant to help give kids a healthy/positive resource (bikes) to help minimize their screen time and to help them stay away from drugs and alcohol.
While this event has racers from beginner to expert level, we have something for everyone! It is meant to bring the community together, encouraging kids to ride bikes and promote a healthy life-style. For our non-competitive and family participants, the 3 and 5 mile courses through Tuzigoot National Monument the kids 13 and under are free. Fourteen and older are $5. Adults $10. Nobody will be turned away for monetary reasons.
The 2020 Verde Valley Rally will feature 5 music bands, two local food trucks, a hot dog stand, coffee truck, old western saloon, vendors, farmers market/art show, bike rodeo, multiple kids events and more.
Free 48 hour camping will be provided for our out of town guests at Riverfront Park (RV, trailer and tent friendly).
Our goal is to have a positive impact on our community as a whole - supporting our event partners, local businesses, musicians, artists, farmers and of course our local youth and trail systems!
