DESCRIPTION

There is no better way to kick off the cycling season than a warm base camp

Tuscon AZ is one of the best bicycling cities in the country. We will be riding its iconic routes to prepare for the cycling season. This is an unmanaged excursion. Think of it as going on group rides with no leader (or everyone is a leader) while on vacation. For the most part, rides are straightforward. There are shorter ride options. The goal is to get in some base miles and enjoy the sun. It is important NOT to go hard every ride. Monday’s climb up Mt Lemmon will be the big challenge of the week.

Want more information? Check out the

2019 Winter Basecamp Ride Report.

 

The remaining rides will be at a suitable pace to build miles without going into the red. Riders have the option to ride at their speed or chose alternate routes.

At some point, we will all meet for dinner and maybe have a party. The last planned ride is on Thursday. This gives folks the opportunity to see the Grand Canyon, MTB Sedona, or chill in Phoenix before returning to work.

FRIDAY / SATURDAY

Arrive and have the bike set up for Sunday’s ride. There may be a short ride in the afternoon to test the equipment.

If you are up to the challenge join the famous Shootout group ride on Saturday morning.  I’m planning to do an easy breakfast ride on Saturday and enjoy the pool for the rest of the day.
