Thank you, PBAA!

El Grupo attended a portion of the PBAA (Perimeter Bicycling Association of America) meeting 12/14/10 to present to them a gift of a hand-made award created from recycled bicycle parts and a poster of numerous El Grupo images. We wanted to show our gratitude for the tremendous help and generosity the Tucson PBAA has extended to El Grupo over the years. Thank you very much, PBAA.

See a handful of photos HERE.

Thank You’s and Tuesday

Workin hard for the money

Thank you first to everyone for coming out and helping with the street fair valet. It was a very successful event, I believe, with our most bicycles parked ever. Congratulations to all for making it happen. I very much enjoyed the energy everyone brought to the event and seeing so many of the new faces of the team hanging out, getting to know each other, and the team.

Tuesday December 14th

The PBAA is having a meeting at the downtown YMCA at 6:30pm. This is the organization that puts on the El Tour.  Colin and I made a trophy  to present to them and Daniela had a poster made. We have been invited to the YMCA to present it to them. I know that this is finals week for all of you and I do not want you home late. School is number one. However I would love it if as many of you  as possible could show up to say thanks. It would go a long way. So if you can come to practice and the meeting great. If you have to skip practice and then just come to meeting great. If you can’t make either because you are studying great. But please let me know. Smiling faces go a long way. Oh if you have to choose, come to the meeting and not practice, in your team t-shirt or jersey of course.

Sorry for the huge images. (I fixed them. -Colin)

This weekend: 4th Ave & more

Thanks to everyone who commented and signed up for times this weekend. You are expected during those times, so you know. I still have a few gaps and there are plenty of you to help fill them.

Saturday 4-6pm needs covered. (Matt, I have you done for at least 3-4pm)

Sunday 2pm-6pm still needs lots  of help, so please plan on coming to help then if you have not already signed up for other hours.

Finally, there was a change in the schedule and we will NOT be having a SPIN Class at O2 this weekend. Our next class there is on the 18th of  December.

Thanks again for all the help with the bike valet this weekend!

4th Ave Street Fair – Bike Valet

It is coming. The 4th Ave Street Fair will be bringing in thousands and thousands of people for holiday shopping…and we only hope that a few of them decide to ride their bikes instead of looking for parking. That is because El Grupo will be providing FREE bike valet parking for all three days out… Read more »

O2 Modern Fitness spin class album!

Thank you, O2, Modern Fitness for the fantastic class on Saturday! That was exhausting and fun! As I was too busy spinning, there are only about a dozen images (I had to show Richard and Alex in front of me who was dominating the field….lol). Check out the photos HERE.


We had an awesomely busy day today, but lots of fun. I hope to get some great photos up soon from the GABA Toys for Tots ride this morning at the zoo, where El Grupo youth rocked the bike valet parking. And I’m sure Kathleen will be posting photos from our killer workout at O2… Read more »
