ROC Riders..

It’s time to mountain bike!  Join the team this Sunday at 630am at the NE corner of the Safeway parking lot at Nexus and Valencia.  From here, we’ll make and ride our way through the multiple trails and connections throughout Fantasy Island.

Maximum Hoodoo – Heart of the Climb:  Saturday, August 24th at 630am.  Looking for a challenging yet rewarding climb up and through some of Mt. Lemmon’s most scenic sections?  Check the links below and join the Mt. Lemmon Challenger Series third climb.

The ride starts at the Molino Canyon Vista parking lot (1/4 below Molino Basin) and includes four climbs past Windy Point and through the Valley of the Hoodoos to Rose Canyon Lake.  Each climb shorter than the last.

Team..  As a Qualified Charitable Organization, the incentive amounts align with the $400/Single and $800/Married Arizona State Tax Credit amounts.  Let’s do our part to help promote and support El Grupo by taking advantage of this “Donate today – Receive the full donation as a State Tax refund later” opportunity!
