TUCSON – BITS (4) Week 5/6 D/25/1, Bike Arizona –
By the restroom
This is the 5th of a series of 6 BITS rides (Back In The Saddle).
Our start location will be, as it has been, about 1/2 mile west of La Canada.
The educational content before we ride will focus on lane positioning when riding on the roads.
Be sure to bring:
• your bike in good repair and safe riding condition
• a helmet
• front and rear lights to see and be seen
• a water bottle or 2, you choose
• a snack
• a spare tube that fits your tire and a means of inflating your tube if you should have a flat.
This route has no place to get coffee. At the turn around at El Rio Park, there is a picnic table where we can pause, eat a bar, etc. There is not a restroom at the Park.
We can choose to return by way of Silverbell to Ina and then get back on the Path to home. There is a convenient store on Silverbell. Or, we can choose to return exactly as we rode outbound. There is a restroom at a park we would pass where you can address all bio needs. Either choice will be the same distance.
Our route is Here. The posted route is only drawn as one way. Double the distance and you’ll have the whole route.
