    We will start off the season with a nice ride through Catalina State Park and northwest Tucson!!  The route will be altered slightly from the traditional NW Loop de Loop to minimize the use of very busy    La Canada Dr.   

    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.

    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.  

    Coffee and chat after at Beyond Bread, which requires masks at this time.

    Route alterations:

    1. At mile 1.7 do not turn left onto Magee (traffic light). Instead continue straight on Northern to Calle Concordia and turn left. Take this to La Canada, turn right down the hill, and get on the CDO bike path as usual.

    2. At mile 24, instead of continuing downhill on La Canada, turn right on Tangerine. At the first light, turn left on La Cholla. Ride all the way down the hill to the bottom of the CDO wash (just as we would normally do on La Canada), and climb up the other side. Watch for a sign pointing left that says To Magee Rd East (or something to that effect), and make the turn. At the stop sign, turn left on Magee and ride to Northern as usual and turn right.
