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.
