The practices that were listed in a previous post remain the same for this week – only the dates were off by a week.

NO SPANDEX on Tuesday (today!). We will be cleaning up the clubhouse, van, trailer and signing sponsor jerseys. Everyone should be there!


Tuesday the 7th-– We are going to get the clubhouse cleaned up and I need to make sure that everyone has a mountain bike. So please on this day let’s make sure that we all have mountain bikes.


Wednesday 8th— All first time mountain biker are going to ride with a master at Barrio Trials.

All others will go on an urban fun mountain bike ride.


Thursday 9th— Tumamoc. Please families feel welcome to come. Also riders please bring real shoes.


SATURDAY, MAY 11TH: Super fun ride with Vistoso Cycling Club – longtime supporters of El Grupo and really strong retired riders.  This is mandatory and families are invited to join us at Dove Mountain resort for the ice cream social part!  Here is what the plan is:

The Cyclists will meet El Grupo near Tohono Chul Park (a familiar route near Ina and Paseo de Norte) about 7:45am, in the adjacent church parking lot. This will be a chance to get acquainted briefly. Then, we will re-trace Northern and La Canada through Oro Valley to the destination:  the “summit” at Dove Mountain. 

Dove Mountain will be a treat for the kids;  The nearly 6-mile downhill descend will be a blast. Perhaps, the coolest experience for all of 
us will be at the base of Dove Mountain;  Dove Mountain Park, is a hidden park jewel. Here the kids and Cyclist can enjoy each other, and with ice cream treats, cookies, and coffee for the adultsAll the conveniences are there; restrooms, picnic facilities, open grassy areas, and shade. Cyclists and volunteers will be prepared for the riders

All Vistoso Cyclists, their spouses and friends are invitedand to view the riding action. Videos and Photos will be taken throughout the event

More details about starting times for us will be posted this week.
