ROC Riders!!

Since we are scheduled to ride with El Grupo the last Sunday of this month, let’s move the monthly mtb ride forward a week so we can do both!

Ride Route:  This Sunday’s ride will be a mtb ride starting from the Hohokam Trail parking area off of Aqua Verde Road at 730am.  From here, we’ll find our way to the McKenzie trail for a little frenzie!

*Take Marsh Station Rd to E. Aqua Verde Road, turn left, cross tracks, park.
