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.
