Steady Pace 33-mile Ride at Moderate Speeds for B (and aspiring B riders)B Pace (spirited/enthusiast) is for the cyclist who enjoys riding at an average pace, likes a challenge but is not interested in race-like training conditions where the pace is challenged by different paces or top-end speeds.
Start and Finish on Canada del Oro Loop behind Planet Fitness
Out to Saddlebrook via Oracle and in/out of Catalina State Park Route map hereOur goal is to generally maintain a 15-18 mph speed (depending on wind direction) on the 1% -2% grade up to Saddlebrook. Store stop/rest break at the Mini mart in Saddlebrook. Return trip pace 18-24 mph on descent back into Oro Valley. The goal is to keep our group together.
This will be a no drop ride; however, we ask riders to be able to maintain at least the minimum posted speed. Faster riders who choose to go off the front will be on their own.

- We will be on a nice ride through Catalina State Park and northwest Tucson!! Start time: 9:30AM
Please always check the weather reports and also for changes in schedule, including time, etc. It's a good idea to look at this Ride Notice a bit before leaving home for the Start.
This ride generally repeats every week. Follow Bill Koehler on Strava for the route map.
This ride will go through NW Tucson, taking in Catalina State Park (loop 1), Rancho Vistoso/Del Webb (loop 2). Riders may complete both loops or skip them and reconnect with the main group. This ride has varied paces, depending on the riders present. View maps of ride variants here and here.
Coffee and chat after at Beyond Bread!

WEATHER WATCH- Ride may cancel late due to rain!!!
Description: NW side. Out to Savaya Coffee in Shops at Tangerine & Dove Mtn Road. Regrouping. Link to route map. Multiple mileage options. Lately using Alternate Return - Moore Rd to Thornydale.
We've temporarily added EXTRA CREDIT! At the end of the ride, take an extra couple miles up Magee to the Dewhirst trail head=ALL new pavement--nice at end of ride...but, there are hills--
Full range-of-B ride plus C+ riders having companions to see them through, thus also ebikes, always respecting Club policies. Sometimes a C+ rider group shows with a sweeper and that's great, but cannot be assured.
Please be ready to ride at Start time. The rest of us thank you!
First time riders always welcome. If you've ridden with us once but haven't yet joined, please check our Non-Members (tab) policy. We have a cheap one month plan!
Details: Outbound to Dove Mtn Rd via La Canada to Tangerine to Thornydale to Moore Rd with a short loop through The Tunnel at Far N Thornydale. Then Moore to Dove Mtn and down to Savaya on your left. Higher milers have the top of Dove Mtn Rd (~ 39 mi) option or even the roundabout (~ 41 mi), but we all check in at Savaya. "Alternate" Return RETRACES Dove Mtn up to Moore, Moore to Thornydale, then down to Tangerine Bike Lane rejoining original route. Bike Lane east to Innovation then Bike Path on to Oro Valley Country Club gate. Home via Desert Sky or Milagro by vote at the gate, for one more or less mile. Calorie recovery therapy at Bakehouse always on the table. Come join us!
