West Suburbia Loop
I decided to ride the west suburbia loop today after riding the east with Dave C. yesterday (on Fridy, Tom, Dave and I rode the newest section of the AZT out at Sweet Water. If you have not ridden it, you need to). After a rather stormy morning, the sun started to shine after finishing my shopping at Trader Joe's. I estimate both the east and west suburbia loop have about 60 miles (it can be done in a figure 8 loop).
Some pictures of Mt Lemon in the background, typical double track
Single track near Thornydale Road

More double track
Riding in Tucson in the winter: shorts and leg warmers
Enjoying the pipes near the I-10 construction, my newest playground
More singletrack in Suburbia
Arm tan line in Tucson
This ride paled in comparison to the KCE pre-ride this weekend in the rain. Max, Dave and I rode for about 2 hours in the wind/rain. It made me realize that I need to buy some warm bike clothes, possibly something I can add to the Christmas wish list this year. Dave and I had a jolly old time drinking beer, riding, and talking. He left a bit early today allowing me to ride a bit, clean up, and do some shopping.
Next on the ride list: pre-ride the Sedona Big Friggin Loop.
