The Community Bike Ride List 11.8.14-11-14.14

If you want to ensure you receive the ride list please email damion@damionalexander.com and put ride list in the subject. The format is a little different and easier to read in the email.

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.
