Community Ride List June 25- July 1, 2016

Last Sunday hit a 20 year High in the Old Pueblo.  However, it has not stopped people from riding both on the road and mountain Bikes.  I find that a great way of dealing with the heat is to ride at 4:30AM. Finish before 9AM.  Go to work for a few hours and do what people in Tucson have done for centuries during the heat of the day. Take a siesta! Tomorrow is a fun ride that benefits BICAS.  It Continue Reading ››

Community ride list June 11-18

In the last ride list I was so excited about the low temperatures, but said “of course, it will likely jump into a record high the following week with temps in the 120’s just to bring us back to reality.”  Well, I was off by 8 degrees as we only hit 112.  It was the second earliest it has hit 110 in history.  I’m skipping past anything on global warming and heading for ideas of coping with the heat. I Continue Reading ››

Ride list May 28- June 3

Can you believe that we are at the end of May and still seeing temperatures in the 80’s.  On a ride this week with a 5:30AM start I was actually feeling chilled.  It looks like this trend is holding until next Friday. Of course, it will likely jump into a record high the following week with temps in the 120’s just to bring us back to reality. This weekend has a great challenge with the Triple Crown Challenge.  Three Days, Continue Reading ››
