Community Ride List November 28- December 4

Happy Thanksgiving weekend.  I hope you had a chance to over indulge in both miles in the saddle and the seasons trappings.  I certainly have.  I am so Thankful  for the Cycling Community in Southern Arizona and each of you who give back.  I’d like to name people, but the list is so long, it would exceed the length of this list. I know it was hard for me to pull the ride list together this week.  El Tour follow Continue Reading ››

El Tour De Tucson

At the end of this blog are links to over 100 images from El Tour. In the weekend before Thanksgiving,  the best place to be is Tucson Arizona for El Tour De Tucson.  I recommend staying through the Thanksgiving weekend as southern Arizona has so many “Must Do” Rides and it takes a full week just to see even a fraction of them.  Tucson is surrounded on all sides by mountains and the valley floor is fairly flat.  This gives Continue Reading ››

Fall Cyclovia 2015

All of the Cyclovia Tucson Fall Photos from The Damion Alexander Team in one place. If you are unfamiliar with Cyclovia it is an Open Streets events.  Open street events are exactly what they sound like – they open streets to people by closing them to cars for one day, and allow people to explore different parts of their city by jogging, walking, bicycling, skating and just playing. They are non-competitive and there is no start or finish line. The event Continue Reading ››

Community Bike Ride List Oct 31-Nov 6

November 3rd is election day.  There are huge benefits for the cycling community if all 7 bonds pass.  As this list is all about bikes, I’d encourage you to vote for all 7. This list is a major time commitment and it is my pleasure to put it together.  All I ask in return for the list is that you remember I’m A REALTOR.  If you have a relationship with another REALTOR, I love loyalty and respect those relationships.  However, Continue Reading ››

Community Bike Ride List October 23 -30

Thursday, October 29th is the last day to get your early ballots in the mail.  There is so much in the Bond election that will benefit the cycling community from roads, the velodrome, Loop Improvement and expansion, trailheads, and protecting open space.  I ask you to vote yes on all 7 propositions for the future of our community.  As for the cost… It will only be $17.54 per year for the average home owner.  This is a very good value Continue Reading ››

Community Ride list for October 17-23, 2015

So many great rides, so little time.  It is the time of the year that many of the shop rides start to change start times, so make sure to double check before you head out.  On the plus side, this time of year they are later, so it may just mean you are early. There is a great ride for Habitat For Humanity.on Saturday the 17th.  With four different routes, including a 10 mile recreational ride, 30 mile and 60 Continue Reading ››

Community Bike Ride List Oct 10-16

Early voting started this week for the Pima County Bond Election. Speaking from the “Bike” prospective, there are many reasons to vote yes on all 7 bond propositions.  I have gone through every item and broken down what is good for cycling. It has funding for  roads, the loop, bmx tracks, trailheads, new trails, open space and more.  If you want the detailed list please email and say Bonds and Bikes in the subject.  No matter how you feel Continue Reading ››

Community Ride list Oct 3-9

This week I spent over 10 hours updating the ride list. I hope you like it.   I tracked down all the races across the State of Arizona as well as events that looked fun for those who love bicycles. If you want to ensure you get this list, send an email with your name to and put Ride List in the subject. On a very sad note, this week, ANOTHER cyclist was killed while riding his bike in Tucson.

Community Bike Ride List September 26th-October 2nd

The bike ride this week is again a little abbreviated as I ended up spending 3 hours today working on a different bike related issue.  I was called by the developer of Saguaro Ranch about a conflict between some owners and mountain bikers on the Como Trail off of Moore Road.  This has been ongoing and I went to meet with the principals. My intent was to find some middle ground. Some days it goes your way, and some days Continue Reading ››

Community Bike Ride List September 11-18

Have you heard the phrase “Foot in Pedal”?  It means that when a ride says it starts at 6AM, the ride leaves at 6AM.  If you are going to a group ride, you should expect that it is going to leave when it says.  I’m saying this as we are moving into the peak season and I’m seeing riders show up at “6AM” for a 6AM ride and are upset when the group leaves them behind. The ride list is Continue Reading ››
