R & I Bicycle Loop Ride C+/2/57
Join Rich & Ike as we cycle the bicycle loop. We’ll meet at the west end of the parking lot of Udall Park, 3nd left (near the Dog Park area) from the main entrance along Tanque Verde at 6:45 AM for our ride around Tucson via The Loop Bike paths. Please, no ear buds on this ride. The average end-of-ride pace will be 15-16 MPH for the 57 mile ride. We will exit Udall Park on the west side and onto the the Pantano Bike Path. We'll continue south on the new Harrison Greenway bike path to Rita Rd and onto the Julian Wash Bike Path. We'll take a quick restroom break at Kolb Rd before we continue west on the path until we pick up the Santa Cruz River Bike Path. There is a nice park along the bike path to take our next short break for snacks and a restroom visit. We will then head north to the Rillito River Bike Path which will take us east to the end of the path at Craycroft and River Rd. and a short break. From there we will ride back to Udall Park via Craycroft to Glenn, to Sahuara, to Pima then onto Tanque Verde and back to Udall Park.
