Oh yeah, every 2nd Tuesday we play on Mt Lemmon; every 3rd Tuesday we let the boys join our fun and try to have a co-ed ride :) Dig out your beret, because we're heading to France! Let's explore the gorgeous provincial countryside on the Petit Boucle route. We're also continuing to invite the guys while we're still riding virtually.

  • Mt. Lemmon Hill Climb Challenge (Virtual Ride)

    Online event

    Mt Lemmon Hill Climb Challenge REGISTRATION OPENS SEPTEMBER 1st, 2020. Mt Lemmon is right up there with the famous passes in the European tours: hardly anywhere else in the US can you climb so high for so many miles in succession. That's why, every winter, Tucson sees packs of riders in matching jerseys, many of them speaking languages other than English, booking up the mountain. Because the road is so long, it's also very forgiving: the grade averages only 4.5% for 6600 feet of elevation gain over the 56-mile round trip, and the almost continuous 21-mile descent at the end is exciting without ever being terrifying. _____________________________________________________________________________________ How it works for the Mt Lemmon Hill Climb Challenge; 1.
