This week it begins, March 18-22. This year, the event has something for everyone.... downhill shuttles, rides for any skill level, including newbies and epic, technical loops. I plan on leading some pretty darn semi-epic rides along with a C and B ride down here in Tucson. Check out the schedule here at this year's website. The group sizes should be small this year since we have so many leaders. It should be some great training if you want to come out and ride.
On the topic of training, I squeezed in 1.5 hour run (about 9 miles) and a quick 20-mile ride on the new Lynksey.
