El Tour Work Trade

November 11th Thursday we all have a chance to finish our El Tour work trade. Years ago we set up a program so that El Grupo riders could work their way into the event. This is still true today, but we all need to do 10 hours before the event to get in.
So this Thursday I will meet you all at the Clubhouse at 9am. From there we will ride, in normal clothes, the offices at Broadway and Tucson.
We will work from 10am til 5pm, and then ride home.
I will buy lunch and bring music for the day.
I know this is a long day but hopefully our last day.
Most of you have already put in 3 hours from the running event earlier in the year, so this will make 10.
Also please bring a pair of needle nose pliers.


A GPS map of the A team’s ride yesterday

Mike McKisson of Tucson velo was kind enough to send me a map of the A teams ride yesterday that he made using his fancy bike computer.

I want to reiterate what Nacho said, everyone’s effort level and attitude was awesome yesterday! I am so impressed by everyone riding on El Grupo and I want to thank you all for letting me be a part of the team.
