We'll meet at the east end of the parking lot of Udall Park along Tanque Verde at 9:30AM for a ride out to Pistol Hill and back. We will ride on bike lanes on Tanque Verde, Speedway, Harrison, Spanish Trail and Camino Loma Alta. There are a few short hills on the route, none that are too steep. We will ride at a 14-15 MPH end-of-ride average pace for about 47 mile. Great view of the Rincon Mountains and the Tucson valley from our regrouping stop at the top of Pistol Hill. On our way back, we'll stop at the Saguaro National Park for a short rest, then a quick picnic loop before heading down Freeman Rd. to Speedway. From there we will make our way back to Udall Park via Speedway, Camino Seco, Pima, Pio Decimo and Tanque Verde.
After the ride, we will celebrate a great year of biking by serving up Pizza and sodas at the Ramada close to where we park our cars on the east side of Udall Park. Please let me know on Meetup if you can join us. We look forward to seeing you on our last ride of 2014.
