Tucson Greets Phoenix 5 Ride

When: January 3, 2015
Where: Charouleau Gap (Catalina, AZ)
Time: Kickstands up 9am
Ride Difficulty: B to B+

Always scenic, always a bit of challenge. Rocky and some steep climbs. Possible single track bonus loop to Oracle for lunch. Found a new spot with some AWESOME food. If you are tired, you can slab back to your truck or take the same route backward for a "double your pleasure" day. Not big bike friendly. Phoenix Supercross is the next weekend so I planned around it this year.

I could use some coordinates for the staging area, it's been awhile.

Hoosier ride

If Hoosier Daddy can make it, we can too. Maybe I can conquer the big hill on my little bike.

What is this, some kind of challenge?? I recall a January trip with ice on the trail. Too much of that and it wouldn't be bike friendly, period!

No way...Allen hates when someone messes with his steering stabilizer let alone dropping his 990 in a boulder strewn creek bed.

(It wasn't me messing with your steering stabilizer Allen, I promise).
