We had a wonderful weekend of amazing Tucson traditional rides.  First of course on Saturday was the famous shootout ride.  Our team members benefit greatly from this weekly ride and integrating with the Tucson cycling community.

Sunday we were able to hold our annual Fall Fondo after a year’s absence.  I was really impressed how team members were gracious hosts and accompanied so many great friends out on our suggested routes of 70, 50 and 35 miles.   Thank you to all the businesses that donated time, resources to make it a special event and thank you so much for all participants in what is our biggest one day fundraising event!  We are in the process of buying the clubhouse building so the proceeds will go directly into the acquisition.

NICA #4 this week moves to Phoenix and Southern Conference hosted event.  That means we race Saturday and not Sunday.  We need to leave no later then 12:30pm on Friday so please arrive at the clubhouse at noon.  Shannon has put together the latest SignUp Genius for our all important and appreciated team for the kitchen.  Thanks in advance for your hard work!


We’ve had a couple of colder evenings last week so it’s important that all riders have an extra layer of clothing available to put on during the ride for that temperature drop.  A wind vest is best.  Please see us if you don’t own this garment and we can help pick one for you.  Also we remind all that we require you to have working (fully charged) lights and of course a spare inner tube to be able to practice with us.

Here is the practice schedule for the next two weeks;
