Something you do not see very often, more mountain bikers riding up Lemmon than road cyclists on any given day. The explanaion we got: "As El Tour nears, road cyclists start to ride more flatter, longer miles." Hmmmmmm, interesting. Either way, we saw very few roadies as we headed up to Bug Springs.
I had heard of some work done on Bug Springs Trail; those reports were correct, although few if any things have really changed when you go up it (that I can remember).
We had two riders that had never ridden Bugs, Ty and Dominic. Both had some very impressive climbing skills.
It's easy to see why this is one of the best trails in Tucson. Great views of the Rincons and some very well-made singletrack.
Riding with Mr. 20x36 has me dreaming of switching back to gears. He makes it look so easy to clean everything. On the singlespeed, it is near impossible to clean any major technical ascent on Molino.
Some flats caused some moments to pause and take even more pictures of Milagrosa.
La Milagrosa...easlily the best technical trail in Arizona. I am lucky enough to have it here in Tucson.
