In Announcements, Community Events, Team Rides by Dean Drawbaugh1 Comment

ROC Riders!

After marching to Madera Canyon last week, May is for Mountains continues this Friday, 5/4 as we join GABA’s annual ride to the summit of the mighty Mount Lemmon.  The ride will start and leave from Crossroads Coffee Company at 645am.  We’ll make our way to McDonald Park from there, sign in, and then begin our ascent.  Please register in advance to help support GABA’s ongoing support of Tucson’s cycling community.

Switching gears, special thanks to ROC rider, Rip Nicholson, for her most recent and creative “GEARage Sale” fundraiser!  After collecting and taking her Sunday+ to sell cycling and outdoor gear from dozens of supporters, Rip raised and donated over $1,600 to El Grupo Youth Cycling.  Thank you, Rip!!  GEARage Sale Part II in November?
