    Ride description:
    We will meet at the Sprouts parking lot away from the front of the store, then cross the parking lot to hop on the Pantano Path going south to the Julian Wash connection making pit stops and snack breaks as needed. The plan is to get back by around noon.  If you haven't been out on the new Harrison Road Green way section you are in for a real treat! Smooth pavement and just desert on both sides (Fantasy Island and Air Force base land). Potential detour about mile 25  at Sarnoff to get to Viros Italian Bakery for lunch on ride back. We exit the path near Sarnoff, stop at Viros, then continue on Sarnoff to Kenyon to get back onto path.

    I am trying this ride again and hopefully the weather will be better. The ride is to Gates Pass Road and into Saguaro Park West, up Sandario, past the airport on Avra Valley Road and back on Silverbell.

     

    Some of the roads do not have bicycle lanes, you should be comfortable riding with the traffic and climbing steep sections.

     

    :*Please note the Starbuck's parking lot is fairly small but there are strip malls and parking around  and at Walmart .
