If you know anyone who would like to receive the list, please feel free to send them my way.  Damion@DamionAlexander.com I’ve been really busy working on the distracted driving summit at the State Capital in Phoenix on the 25th.  We need to have a GIGANTIC turn out so the state can see how important safety is.  There Continue Reading ››

The Community Ride List for December 3-10

It’s arrived!!! The month when we don’t have time to do anything because we are doing everything.  Holiday Parties, shopping, family, travel, and hours and hours of frustrating time in traffic. With the shorter days and colder weather finding time to ride the Bike can be allusive.  Having once successfully ridden 365 days straight, I recommend that you make the bike ride the top priority. Ride as early in the day as possible, if not the days will just slip Continue Reading ››

Giving Tuesday

Today is #GivingTuesday. It is so much better in my opinion than Black Friday.  It gives us a chance to look around, take stock of what matters to us and help others. Personally, I get that times have been a little challenging for so many of us and that just paying the bills and fulfilling our own household obligations are sometimes hard enough and to think of investing in our community may not be at the top of the list.

The most important ride list of the Year

This is the most important ride list of the year.  Why?  Because more people in Tucson train for El Tour De Tucson and after ride day, put the bike down for months and even years.  With the holidays, parties, family, and all the stress that we shoulder this time of the year, it’s easy to hang up the bike. So I’m challenging you to commit now to making cycling a year long commitment. If you are the type of person Continue Reading ››

We are almost there.  The grand daddy of Tucson Rides.  Over 8000 riders will be taking over the streets of Tucson next weekend for the Tucson Medical Center 34th El Tour de Tucson presented by Casino del Sol.  For many, it’s a good week to taper.  For others, like me, it might be about time to start training;-) I’d like to THANK all who have donated to my ride for a child as well as everyone who has been riding for Continue Reading ››

NICA High School Mountain Bike Race #5

This year I only made it to  one NICA race as my son, Sam, has told me he rides better and his luck is improved when I am not there. Since he was on the podium in the first 4 races and his overall standings were not likely to change in the final race I was given permission to attend. Good news, I have over 1250 photos from the race.  CLICK HERE to see all the racing action Bad news, Continue Reading ››

Cyclovia Fall 2016

Friends, friends and more friends. That is what I like the most about Cyclovia. I have discovered one huge problem with this event. 10-3 is not long enough. There were hundreds of friends that I could spend 5 hours with each catching up, and to have all the activities on top of that!!! I’d like to propose Cyclovia Week;-) Cyclovia showcases how awesome car free roads can be and how much support this movement has. Thanks Living Streets Alliance for Continue Reading ››
