Join Rich and Ike on this ride around the east side of Tucson. We will meet at the "Dog Park" parking lot at Udall Park for a 6:45 AM departure. (The meeting location is the third left turn from the main (west) entrance off of Tanque Verde Rd.). Please, no ear buds on this ride. Our 38 mile ride will start by exiting the park on the west side and picking up the Pantano Bike Path. Once on the path we will begin the ride heading south and exit at Kenyan to OST to Saguaro Pk. and do the full loop. We will then take a quick restroom break at the Ramada before we head south on Escalante Rd. A left turn onto Houghton to Valencia. Right onto Valencia to the Pantano Bike Path and return back to Udall Park. Easy ride with great views of Tucson. If the group wants a longer ride we can turn left on the Pantano Bike Path to Rita Rd and stop at Kolb before turning around and returning to Udall.
