Not sure how active this thread is compared to the general Tucson Area Bulletin Board, but I'm thinking a Thurs 8-8 or Thurs 8-15 ride to do the Tanque Verde - Redington - San Manuel - Oracle - Backside Mt. Lemmon - Catalina Hwy - Tanque Verde loop.

120 miles of easy dirt roads and pavement.

Was thinking next Thursday (8-8-13) but would happily wait until the following Thursday (8-15-13) if it would mean a bigger group or be more convenient for folks with the longer notice and all.

I could probably do an 8-15 ride. What time would you be leaving on the 15th?

Seems like 8-15-13 is gonna work best for most people, myself included.

I'm thinking a meetup at the Speedway/Houghton Circle K at 7:30 am the morning of the 15th and heading up Redington from there.

I'll see if I can get in on this. I might try Chiva again on Thursday or Friday. We took trucks up there on Saturday, and when you get into the wash area with the trees, you go left and it takes you to the chiva pools - very nice! Rained in the whole regiona good bit last night!

I'd love to take a shot at Chiva falls again, but I can't make it this week.

I hope you do get in on the 8-15 DS loop though. I haven't gotten any PMs from anybody confirming that they want to go for sure, but it'd be awesome to get a real group ride together.

Here for a few weeks

I'm in Tucson for about twelve days, including next weekend. Hoping to get in on the 8-15 ride but I'll have to see how the meetings at work fall. At any rate, I'm here with an R100GS and was wondering if anyone can recommend any nice, half-day routes I could either hit after work, get up early and ride, etc. Looking for dirt roads and GS-able trails. Wish I had my husky with me but 1,600 miles is a lot to ask of a 250cc thumper.

I'll be here next weekend as well if anyone is getting anything up on Saturday or Sunday. I WILL be riding those days either in a group or alone -don't know where, but I will definitely be out there. Prefer it if I had some idea of where I should start
