    Hi All! I just signed up for the Tour to Tucson through this group. It is April 20-21st. I have reserved a room at the Westin LaPoloma for[masked] (including in that the 13% tax). I have two beds in the room. If you are interested in going on the rides and staying overnight, I would love a roommate to split the cost. Feel free to approach me at this ride or any others before that date. Thanks!

    Is there a route map yet, Sheryl?

    March 14, 2013

    • Sheryl K.

      I haven't had time to find it. But basically, we'll head to Rio Verde, up 9-mile hile to Pima, stop at the convenience store and turn around and zoom down 9-mile hile and back to Fountain.

      Sorry...wrong ride...LOL. Charlie will lead the ride through Ahwatukee, to Baseline to 24th street (I think) and then to Dobbins and to South Mountain. Those who want to do the towers, may, and those who want to do San Juan, may.
