We drove to Oro Valley and parked at the Ina/Oracle Road intersection. Got on our bikes and headed west with a brief stop to regroup. Nice view of Panther and Sombrero peaks from this perspective.
We rode up and over Rattlesnake Pass. Traffic was very heavy, much more so than a few years ago. Turning around, I could see why as development is booming out here. Not having much of a berm too was unpleasant.
We stopped at a new Quick Trip!!! My favorite gas station and this one, at I-10 and Twin Peaks is in a good location for refueling stops. Amy, being a amateur nutritionist, examines the back of a package, letting me know next time, I ought to buy something else.
We finished with 40 miles. The next day, I did the unthinkable....
....I joined a group ride on a day that was surely going to be wet. Again, this was on the west side which has several roads with short but steep climbs. As we headed back east, the rain arrived and for the first time in a long time, I was soaked by the time I got to my car. Our very weird winter weather continues.
