The Business Builder Bike Ride Celebrates year 6

For 6 years the Business Builder Bike Ride has met monthly to network, build businesses, ride mountain bikes and drink beer.  April 27th at 4PM is the anniversary ride at Sweetwater Preserve Trailhead.

This ride is the brainchild of two of the most creative and professional businessmen in Tucson, Matt and Brandon Blair from Cirrus Visual Communication. Some people just have it all together.  From family, business, fitness, friends, community involvement and everything else they are a part of.  I have seen many rides start and fail, but this ride just gets better and bigger each month.

Links to 36 plus photo albums from 6 years of Business Builder Bike rides are at the bottom of this page.


The BBBR is a monthly gathering and alternates between Sweetwater Preserve and Fantasy Island.   The format is to do a quick pre-ride meet and greet.  This is limited mostly to who you are and what you do professionally.  Then we get on our bikes and ride.  Post ride beer, hangin’ out trail side, and a call for any upcoming events that we are working on.

This is how Cirrus Visual describes the BBBR.  “If you haven’t heard about this event, think of it as business networking on your bike. Some people do business on the golf course…we love to ride our mountain bikes, and know there are other business professionals like us.

Whether you like to ride fast, or are just venturing into the dirt, all riding levels are welcome! Just bring your bike, helmet and business cards, and we’ll bring the post-ride refreshments. Join us this month and bring a friend – new riders are what keep this event growing!”


Personally, this is one of my favorite rides based on the location, people, scenery, networking and beer.  If you want to go really fast, there is still someone faster.  If you are affectionately known as “the turtle” you will not be left out on the trail by yourself.  Since we start and stop in the same place and the trails we use have extra loops for those who want extra credit everyone can get in the ride they want and still not feel like they are being left out or left behind.  Also, beer, FREE beer (usually)  hoppily greets you at the end of the ride.  So you ask,  Is this really networking or just an excuse to cut out of work, ride bikes and drink beer?   I have now helped 9 friends buy or sell their homes as a direct result of this ride, but you should join us and decide for yourself.

You can sign up for an automatic invite at or look up Cirrus Visual on Facebook.

I’d like to personally THANK everyone who participated in the Tucson Tour De Cure. My passion and support for this event is based on a firm belief that getting people on bikes is a cure for many people with Type 2 diabetes. It also shows that those with Type 1 can lead an active lifestyle and manage their diabetes.

My personal physician, Dr. Alex Perrian, with New Peublo Medicine, is a perfect example of someone who took control of his diabetes.  18 years ago when I went to my annual physical I had put on a few pounds from the previous year.  Dr. Perrian said it is not a big deal, enjoy life, and that it is normal for a man to ad a few pounds a year.  My wife said that at the rate I was going in 20 years I would be 220 pounds, 40-50 pounds overweight.  Whereas, I heard that and watched my weight, Dr. Perrian did put on a pound or two a year. He was just following the advice he had given me of enjoying life to it’s fullest.

A few years ago,  as a result of this lifestyle he found that his  blood glucose level classified him as being  diabetic.    In response to this finding he changed his diet and got on the bike.   He dropped weight, he found more energy, and his tests now show he is not diabetic. The advice he is now giving his patients is, be active.  His advice is working as  New Pueblo Medicine was one of the top fundraising team this year with over $7000 raised for The Tour De Cure with 11 team members!!!

Dr. Perrian is just one of the hundreds of great stories from this event.  Again, THANKS everyone for participating and next year I look forward to seeing even more of you out there.

Tucson Heart and Stroke Walk

All of the photos from the Tucson Heart and Stroke walk will be posted on this page.  You may need to refresh the page to see the new albums.  My goal is to get them all posted this week, but I still have the Tour De Mesa photos as well as a busy week at work.

These photos are a major time commitment and it is my pleasure to put it together. All I ask in return is that you remember I’m A REALTOR. If you have a relationship with another REALTOR, I love loyalty and respect those relationships. However, if not, or if you need a second opinion, Please keep The Damion Alexander Team in mind. Many agents spend money advertising for new business, others sit open houses or cold call. My business is based on referrals from past clients and friends. The less time I have to do traditional prospecting the more I can do for the community. For example: these photos.


Ride on,
Damion Alexander
