Community Bike Ride List Jan 3-9, 2015

HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!!

Hopefully this list will help keep you motivated and in the saddle all year long.  Personally, my goal is to do at least as much if not more for the cycling community in 2015 as I did in 2014.

I have some fun plans for the ride list in 2015.  It will be gradual as time permits and you can expect it to get better and better.  Your comments are greatly appreciated.

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, if not, or if you need a second opinion, Please keep me 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 cycling community.  For example: this list.

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, if not, or if you need a second opinion, Please keep me 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 cycling community.  For example: this list.

Community Bike Ride List December 13-19

Happy Holidays.  This coming week we have lots of rides in Winterhaven.  I’m told the Tuesday Night Ride will have a Santa on Bike towing a Christmas Tree on a Bike Bob.  Bring a Bike Ornament and decorate the tree.

Sorry this is out so late tonight.  Today we had a meeting for with the County Bond Election Committee for the proposed Velodrome.  The good news is that pushed the vote back until January to give the Cycling community a chance to answer some questions on location and funding.  We will be back at the next bond meeting to try again.

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, if not, or if you need a second opinion, Please keep me in mind.  Many agents spend money advertising for new business, some door knock and others  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 clients and friends you refer my team AND for  the cycling community.  For example: This list!

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, if not, or if you need a second opinion, Please keep me 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 cycling community. For example: this list.

Community Bike Ride List 11.22.14 – 11.29.14

This week and next many of the regular ride time are being pushed back to accommodate the sun. I try and verify the times, but some of the start times might be later.

I expect many of the standard Saturday rides will be opt to ride in El Tour De Tucson as well. Also, with Thanksgiving there may be a few rides that take the week off. I try and check every one of these. If you do any of these rides and see an error, please let me know.

This week we have a fraction of the regular rides as many cyclist will be at El Tour De Tucson and Thanksgiving is Thursday.

Happy Thanksgiving. Do yourself a HUGE favor. One you will truly be Thankful for. Sign up for another big Ridein the spring NOW in order to keep the motivation through the holidays. I see so many riders train for El Tour and as soon as they cross the finish line they don’t get back on the bike until next fall.

The Tour De Cure is March 1st. It has 50 and 100K rides. This is the motivation you are looking for to keep riding after El Tour De Tucson! If you use the Promotion Code The Damion Alexander Team you can waive the registration fee.

If you want to ensure you get this list, email Damion@DamionAlexander.com and put “ride list” in the subject.

We have officially entered Bike Season for the masses. This week the list includes 24 unique rides.

This week I put some miles in the saddle house hunting with a client from Colorado.  I also gave them a tour of 50 year trail and the Urban Assault. If you have a friend moving this way who is a Cyclist, I am The Cycling Realtor and The Cyclists Realtor. Even if it is not looking at the homes on bikes, I’ll give them an introduction to what Tucson offers like no one else. Thanks in advance for all your real estate referrals.

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, if not, or if you need a second opinion, Please keep me 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 cycling community. For example: this list.

Southern Arizona Community Bike Ride List for October 25- November 01

One of my goals of this list is to go on as many rides and give a review. Last week I was able to catch the Bicycle Ranch Sat Am shop ride as well as Living Street Alliances Kidical Mass Ride. What a great contradiction in what Tucson offers. A fast shop ride and slow cruise with kids.

Bicycle Ranch Summary and photos https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10154767562795154.1073742148.228735085153&type=3

This week many rides have changed start times. I’ve tried to contact every ride leader, but it’s possible I missed one. If you see anything that needs changing please let me know. Also, as we get into the holiday season you might be looking for some additional motivation. I scoured the state for upcoming races.

The list now has over 30 reoccuring weekly rides, 20 rides this week, 8 upcoming events and over 20 races. There is a ride for everyone. So to quote Queen “Get on your bikes and ride”.

If you want to ensure you get this list and are not on the distribution list, E-mail Damion@DamionAlexander.com and put “ride list” in the subject. Also, feel free to use the same email to contact me about selling your house or helping you find a new one.

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, if not, or if you need a second opinion, Please keep me 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 cycling community. For example: this list.

Weekly Ride list Oct 17-24

If you want to ensure you get this list and are not on the distribution list, E-mail Damion@DamionAlexander.com. Also, feel free to use the same email to contact me about selling your house or helping you find a new one.

This Sunday, many of the weekly rides are merging with the GABA Tumacacori Century , (AKA Gene Chapman Memorial Bicycle Ride and a GABA, El Tour de Tucson Training Ride)

This is most popular GABA bicycle ride in Southern Arizona! Three options are available for riders from novice to very experienced cyclists: 42.8, 82 and 101 miles

I hope to be out there taking pictures. Remember, smile when you see me.

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, if not, or if you need a second opinion, Please keep me 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 cycling community. For example: this list.

Community Bike Rides October 11-18

Please let me know if you see anything that needs changing on the list or if you have an event or ride that is missing.

With many of the events listed in the Event section they have a need for volunteers. Volunteering can often be more fun than the actual ride and as Bike Patrol you still get to ride. It definitely will give you a different prospective on what it takes to make all of the events happen. Also, I know how expensive it can be to enter races and for some it is financially impossible to pay, but by giving time it allows you to still participate. I’m mentioning this now as there was a call for Bike Patrol for the Colossal Vail 50/50 in November. El Grupo also relies heavily on the generosity of the community both in time and donations. So, please get involved and help make Southern Arizona the best cycling community it can be.
