Well if you want to know, please check out www.tucsonvelo.com. My favorite local Tucson cycling news vebsite/ blog. Ashley and Donovan have posted stories about their first two days in the city along with some pictures. Also I want you all to know about this web site because it is a very important informational tool for all of us as Tucson cyclists.
We are having a great time and miss you all.
Friday– Donovan, Ashley and myself are leaving to New York City. We have been sent by BICAS to present at the Youth Bike Summit taking place in Brooklyn. We will be presenting on how Donovan and Ashley came to be youth bike advocates here in our dear city. We will be posting everyday to tell you about what is going on. More information about the summit can be found here.

The Hermosillo trip is quickly approaching and I would like for all of you to have the option to come. This trip happens over Rodeo break. This year it is the 24th-27th of February. We go down to Hermosillo and stay at the Olympic training center. We stay at the center, sleep their in the dorms and eat at the cafeteria. To go though you must have a passport or a passport card. I have all the necessary paper work so please ask if you need it. As well the team can help with purchasing it if you and your family need. I need this to be completed by no later than Monday the 17th. We need to move on this.
