A memorial for John Timbers is scheduled for April 20, 2024 from 1-4 PM at John and Joy’s Bed and Breakfast, the Calumet & Arizona Guest House, 608 Powell St. Bisbee, AZ.

John founded the Vuelta de Bisbee- one of the iconic stage races in Arizona- in 1976 (https://velo.outsideonline.com/…/la-vuelta-de-bisbee…/). He mentored others on the bike regarding skills, tactics, and training and off the bike in life lessons.

As a racer, John won everything from the Iron Horse Classic in Durango to the Manhattan Beach Grand Prix Crit. He was the sole finisher of the Tour of Mexico on the U.S. National team one year. He was still climbing Lemmon several times a week- where he took many victories in the Mt. Lemmon Hill Climb.

There will not be a funeral, but there might be a memorial event next year on John’s birthday.

Thank you, Alan Fischer, for the kind words summarizing John’s impact and the photos.
