 Rider Seeking Companions for Southern Arizona Tour
I am Ben Adam, a rider from NYC, looking to spend a week riding the roads of Southeast Arizona from October 26th, 2017 till Oct 30th, 2017. I am looking for riding-partners for this six-day ride.

Here in New York City, I ride locally with a few riding groups (https://www.facebook.com/groups/203759316410674/).

In the past year, I have ridden in such places as: Jamaica, Connecticut, Cape-Cod, California, Cuba and Tuscany (Italy)  (http://www.CycleBig.com).

I ride a tall-frame hybrid bike and my comfort level is in riding 50-55 miles per day and overnighting in motels. The ride will start at Tucson International Airport and stay in the following locations:

 GENERAL MEETING

BICYCLING in CUBA

Long-time GABA members Joyce and Barry Weiss went to Cuba for a bicycle trip in the Spring of 2017.
Their travels took them from the capital city of Havana to the isolated island of Cayo Levisa. They
visited national parks and tobacco farms in western Cuba, cycled to the picturesque colonial cities of
Trinidad and Cienfuegos, went snorkeling in the Bay of Pigs, and visited many other interesting places.

They will share with you stories and photos of their trip, some advice on the logistics of visiting Cuba,
and of course, some Cuban music.

GABA Jerseys Are Back!



GABA has a newly designed jersey, with a lower-than-ever purchase price! The short sleeved jerseys, in sizes for both men and women, are full zip, club cut, and sell for $45.

These GABA jerseys are sold exclusively at the Loop Bike Shop.  Owner, Michael Wilkinson, is ordering the jerseys in lots of 50, but the popularity of the jersey is causing it to sell quickly. So hurry in to get yours today!

If you find that your size is already sold out, you can try on a Loop Bike Shop jersey for size, as they are made by the same manufacturer. Michael will take pre-orders for the next order placed, and call you when they are in.

Start looking for this knock-out jersey on a ride near you!
