It was a ride with a bit of work, we cut thirty plus trees off of the trail so visiting riders can have a nice ride. More clearing to be done this week end.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a good place to get breakfast that is ~1hr ride from Tucson. Some place the wife and I could ride to in the morning, eat, and be back before it gets too hot.
Thanks

Supposedly there is a good coffee place in Arivaca, that might be stretching the hour limitation though. You could take the death in the desert route to get there, or pavement. I think Brian is most familiar with that route and could tell you more

Patagonia? Haven't had breakfast there but it looks like there's some options.

Here?

Might want to call and make sure they're open.

Not sure where you're coming from, and this might be a bit shorter then you're intending, but there's a place called "Coyote Pause Cafe" just outside of Tucson Estates on Kinney. You could ride over Picture Rocks Rd to Sandario to Kinney and then come back over Gates Pass. It might not take an hour depending on where you're coming from, but going over Picture Rocks/Gates Pass are both fun short sections of pretty twisty road, and most of Kinney Rd (north of Tucson Estates) is a nice flowing curvy road through the Saguaro NP.

I will add that on the way back to gate's pass, you can take w mccain loop for a few extra fun turns, it spits out in the same place a few miles down the road as kinney rd leading to gate's pass.

If you're up for a little dirt, there's a road that cuts the corner from Picture Rocks to Sandario. It's called Golden Gate, it's pretty smooth and well graded. There are a few small rocks and a little bit of sand, but it's not bad. I've driven it in a 2wd Ranger, and I've seen cars on it before.

Early and impressive start for this year's monsoon. Looks like it's going to be a good one.


Thanks for sharing the Colorado photos.
