Day 2 of Sunset Singletrack

Another good day on the bike with a lot of climbing, 3222 feet of climbing in 24.11 miles during the 3.5 hour ride. I finally found the connector to Sweetwater for the Tucson Mountain Preserve Big (Friggin') Loop, aka TMP Big Loop. It is a combo of some steep road, fun double track and the occasional single track.

Here is the final section of Sweetwater that I rode before

before heading back on the gasline road.


I ended up taking the gasline road until a little past Wade Rd. Here is a nice shot of the sunset over Safford Peak.


The profile exemplifies some of the steep grades.

This route might not be best for the TMP BFL, but it is a nice training ground for me since it is so close to home.

Cool down was running for about 2 miles.

Nice! Hope to make it over your way eventually for one of the AES events.

Add the Coco DC to your list of rides to do... it is close to your house.
