Bicycling

Early mornings in the Tucson area are wonderful this time of year.  Bicyclists are everywhere on the quiet streets near our home.  Here’s my favorite riding partner, ready to hit the road.

Every ride begins with a single pedal stroke

We occasionally stop for a picture.  This is pretty typical of the Rancho Vistoso roadside.

That’s Pusch Ridge in the background.  We will continue to Oracle Road and then head north.  You can easily make your trip as short as 10 miles or more than 50.

Going north on Oracle Road (route 77) provides 20 miles of a gentle up grade reaching the 4500 foot elevation at Oracle.  The return to our 2500 foot elevation is fast and fun.
