Ride with Leanda

Welcome to the Pinarello Collective!

Whether you are a current or future Pinarello rider, the Collective aims to bring together cycling fans for free-of-cost training and performance tips and epic rides led by our community leaders.

Pavement Pushers Night Ride :::::
Sabino Canyon laps x2
Well hello there!
I decided to open up and promote my already happening Tuesday night pavement rides to the masses, I hope that some of you can come out and join! ALL bikes are welcome on these rides, however the smoother your tires are the easier time you will have.
These rides will end up splitting into different mini groups depending on speed, the goal is to give folks a chance to earn some great cardio and base miles to help with overall fitness and endurance.
These events are “semi drop” rides. There will be times that riders can be separated, however there are set regroup points that will be discussed prior to each ride depending on the group you are riding with, you shouldn’t be pulling up to your car at the end of the ride on your lonesome, that will not be the plan.
This week we will be doing the Sabino Canyon. The goal is two times up and two times down for a total of X miles, however some may need to build up to that and luckily you can easily peal off at the bottom of a run and make a decision from there.
RIDE GUIDES ::: Eastside Instigator Aric Jack will be your ride leader for this P4 Night Ride,
DIFFICULTY: Blue, climb climb climb to the top, rest for a few and then be prepared to ride your brakes, that descent is crazy fun! Then rinse and repeat!
As these are night rides please bring a light that you are comfortable riding with! For this one the brighter the lights the better while coming down!
DISTANCE: Just over 16 miles
MEET TIME: FIP (Feet In Pedals) @ 6:45 PM, (approx ride time 2 hours)
PARK: Inside Sabino Canyon Park entrance.

El Tour De Tucson

Charity · Community · Health & Wellness

El Tour de Tucson is now preparing to host the 41st year for what we think is one of the premier bicycling events in the country.  We hope you participate in this year’s event on November 23, 2024.  You won’t be alone given that annually over 9,000 cyclists participate in the renowned and popular event.

Charity, community, health and wellness are what Perimeter Bicycling and El Tour are all about. They all go hand-in-hand when it comes to building awareness for a bike ride that has been part of the Tucson community for nearly four decades.

Did you know that El Tour de Tucson enables nonprofit, charitable agencies to raise funds for their respective organizations?  Learn about their programs and sign up to ride on their teams here.  Since 1983, Perimeter Bicycling events have raised over $115 million for local and international charitable organizations.

Weather: Check back the night before the ride and if rain is forecasted, the ride will be postponed by one week.

NOTE: There have been some bicycle thefts recently at Ren’s so keep your bicycle at your elbow or lock it up while you have coffee.

Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign in. If you sign up for the ride and are running a couple of minutes late call Cliff at 520-551-1155 and we will wait up to five minutes before leaving.

Load the route into your bicycle computer, it will help if you get separated from the group or your leader doesn’t load it correctly.

If you haven’t ridden with me before, I will not have your contact information. If so, please send your name, phone number, emergency contact, emergency contact phone number (NOT 911) to cliffhaston55@gmail.com. If you are bringing a +1, send their information as well. The ride waiver will be filled out prior to the ride, you will just need to verify the information and sign it.

There is a good chance that the C ride will end with an average speed of 14 mph. If you are not comfortable or not capable of this expected pace average over the entire route, please do not participate in this ride, it is not fair to the other riders. At the same time, do not push the ride leader to go over the upper threshold for the ride or you may get to talk to 1st Sgt Liane after the ride. These are social rides, lots of conversations, and regroupings as we will not drop anyone. Riders are expected to ride at the pace of the ride leader and between the ride leader and the sweep. There will be ride-at-your-own-pace sections and regroup areas designated by your ride leader.

Bring a tube/patch kit and a way to inflate your tires.
Be sure your bike is in good mechanical condition.

No ear buds! This is a safety requirement, not a request.

If you are riding, I ask that you agree that:
You will obey traffic laws. Drive your bike as you would your car.
You are a representative of the greater cycling community and will therefore conduct yourself appropriately.
You will represent GABA well.
This is not a “training” or “intensive” ride – this is a social, no drop, base building ride.
If any of these standards are unclear, you will ask for clarification.
Route subject to change based upon, weather, road conditions, group requests, and or the ride leader getting lost.

Safety/Legal Refresher: If you made it this far, then you probably have some free time on your hand to see about cycling in Oro Valley. Click HERE for more information about laws, paths, plans, …. that OV has. Did you know that OV has one bicycle law? What is it?
