ROC Riders and TDF Partyers!

Not just a solid set of more miles this week, but a post-ride Tour de France brunch/potluck and pool party!  Please plan to bring something to share with the team.

This week’s ride will leave from the home of fellow ROC rider, Natalie O’farrell, at 630am for a west side route followed by a cool dip in the pool, brunch fare, and a premier showing of TDF’s Stage 9.    With what’s expected to be a heckuva ride across more than a dozen treacherous sections of cobblestones, many of which are part of the Paris-Roubaix one-day race, it’s sure to make for good tv and a radical shift in the overall GC standings!

Ride Start/Finish:  4673 W. Cholla Bluff, Marana

New Route:  From Natalie and Chuck’s castle, west on Moore to Dove Mountain Road.  DMR up to and around the first Ritz round-about, south down DMR to Tangerine, Tangerine west under the I-10 underpass to Moore, west on Moore to Sanders, south on Sanders to Avra Valley Road, AVR east to Sandario, Sandario south to Twin Peaks, TP to regroup at Silverbell/TP (Safeway), TP north to Moore, Moore east to COFFEE!

2018 Team Kits and Fundraising Kickoff Party:  Yes, another party!  Join the team at the Union Public House on Saturday, July 21st, 500-730pm, to pick up your new ROCkin’ team kit, kickoff the upcoming fundraising season, and share an adult beverage or two!  All are welcome.  Bring a friend and a few dollars for a few crafty RAFFLE items!
