    Ride description: CLUB MEMBERS ONLY.  If you are not a member, I will not let you ride with us due to liability issues.  This is the 2nd of 5 rides to get you stronger, faster, and safer climbing and descending Mt Lemmon.   From mile post 0 (MP0) we'll climb for 50 minutes at your own pace.  We'll regroup before we descend, talk briefly about descending skills, descend and then back to LeBuzz for hot/cold drinks.  I intend to cover climbing drills/skills with each rider as we are climbing.

    • Tue, December 23, 2014
    • 9:00 AM
    • Park SE Corner of Silverbell & Cortaro Rds Beside Wheeler Taft Library 7800 N Schisler Dr.

    Leader: Tricia Croft

     

    This is an exploratory ride to test the feasibility of this route as a future group ride. I have ridden parts of this ride but not all together. Come with me to explore this route.

     

    The ride has big hills with twisting road. Riders should be comfortable ascending and descending and competent riding without a bike lane in traffic. Overall I hope to achieve an average of 16 mph.

     

    This is a pretty route with some challenging biking.

     

    I will start at the park beside Wheeler Taft Library

    there is a picnic area and washroom building.

     

    This is the route
