C,C+/2-3/50 This is an out and back on the highway that goes through Oro Valley, past Saddlebrooke, past Oracle Junction and then we turn in at the Biosphere and regroup at the Main entrance. This road has been "off limits" for most of us for the last couple of years due to very extensive road construction. The shoulders are now finished all the way through Catalina and they are a good 8' wide most of the way. This ride is a slow steady climb all the way to the Biosphere and the return is usually a fast downhill and often with a tail wind. Please no ear buds. Call/text[masked] if you need additional information. We meet five minutes before the start with a review of the route and leave promptly at 9:00 a.m. This is the plaza with the Trader Joes and the Village Bakehouse.
