We will all regroup back at the Arizona National Club house for lunch and story swapping.  I will look for someone to lead the Mt Lemmon group the day of the ride (mainly to watch out for each other on the mountain).

    Distance 39 miles

    Medium Hills

    A, B+ levels

     

     

    Rides Leaders:  Tricia Croft

     

    We will start at the new Panera, and go down La Canada, over to Oracle to do Roller Coaster Rd., back up Frontage and Twin Peaks. The ride will be approx. 39 miles, at a strong pace. The goal of this ride is to develop into a faster ride to provide a challenge for those who want a faster ride.

    There are only two volunteer ride leaders so for safety, we have to limit the ride to the two speed levels. B+ is 16-18 mph. average for the duration of the ride. Participants need to be able to ride at the posted levels.

     

    Coffee or lunch and socializing at Panera when we return.

     

    Please park and meet up behind the building.

    • Le Buzz - at Catalina Hiway and Tanque Verde

    Twice a year our Cactus Cycling Club performs a valuable Community Service and picks up trash along our designated section of Catalina Hiway. We ask that all members who are able, please join us for the Cleanup and in order to get maximum participation, lets not schedule any club rides that day from 8 AM to 10 AM. If you wish to schedule a ride, put it on for later. If you have any equipment such as a trash pick up stick that will help with this, please bring it. Trash bags and Visibility vests will be provided as well as coffee and treats at the start. The more people we have to help, the faster we can get it done!! Meet in the parking lot at LeBuzz. Hope to see you there!
