     RIDE ROUTE

    Wednesday Cactus Cycling Club ride route:

    Leave Village Bakehouse parking lot at designated time, proceeding out the North parking lot exit. Turn left onto Magee Rd. Ride Magee to La Canada and turn right. North on La Canada until Canada del Oro river—take bike path to right and stay right. Continue on bike path up to First Ave, leave path and cross over bridge going North on First Ave. Proceed north to Naranja Dr and turn left (traffic light there). Take Naranja back to La Canada, and turn right- (if you are familiar with NW Tucson/Oro Valley this is a detour around the Lambert /La Canada intersection that has been under construction). Take La Canada north to Tangerine. Group may split here. Faster group turns right on Tangerine and goes to Innovation, turning left and taking Innovation to Rancho Vistoso, turning left. Proceed to Del Webb Loop and turn right. This road will dead-end; turn left at dead end and continue following this road until it reconnects with Rancho Vistoso, and turn right. Stay on RV until you reach the traffic light; turn right, then immediate left. Follow this road around until you are at the school-there is a park behind the school and this is our break point.

    If the slower group rides, they stay on La Canada past Tangerine to Desert Fairway, turning right. Proceed to the school and the park.

    Return route by backtracking—when back on bike path, after going under the First Street Bridge, proceed approx. 2 miles—usually we get off the path and go through the Oro Valley Country Club-        do not attempt this as a new person unfamiliar with the area. If you with a Cactus member, they will show you the way.

    Otherwise continue up the bike path to La Canada, going under the La Canada roadway on the bike path and enter La Canada off the path. Proceed up La Canada to Magee Road, turning left. Continue east on Magee until you reach the parking lot where the ride started.

    Drink coffee.
