Hey Team. This is the last week in the build up for the Father’s Day ride up Redington. Tomorrow we have a longer ride of 60 miles planned as we head out to the cotton fields and the ride known as Big Square. There will be a store stop halfway for water and snacks if needed. Here is the map of the ride;
Wednesday will be another short track day out at 36th street while we will take Thursday off to taper correctly into Sunday’s Hill Climb. Let us know your intention to make it out Sunday by signing up at the bottom of the genius page.
For the latter parts of June and the month of July we intend to run ‘bucket list’ classic Tucson 1 day rides as our featured events. Maybe some of you have already tackled these monster Tucson outings but I’d like to hear from you what you’ve always wanted to try. I can think of the obvious routes like summiting Mount Lemmon, Kitt Peak and Madera Canyon but also cool rides like to San Manuel, Parc Link road, Silverbell Mines or Marsh Station road come to mind.
We want these rides to be round trip to the clubhouse to avoid transportation logistics as we still need to limit group drives in the vans with Covid uncertainty.
Team El Grupo tryouts have continued this past week and it will be rewarding to see a collection of new riders, either Grupito graduates or athletes new to the organization enjoying our team dynamic.
