  Starting Monday, Nov. 27, 2017, the west bank of the Santa Cruz River section of
The Loop will be closed between Congress Street and Starr Pass Boulevard. The
Rio Nuevo Caterpillar project and the City's remediation (removal) of a decades-old
landfill are prompting a two-week exploration of the area to further define the
extents of the work. Depending on the remediation areas, there is a potential that
this segment of The Loop will remain closed for longer than two weeks.

The work will be occurring along the entire length of the pathway from Cushing Street
to Mission Lane. Heavy equipment and deep excavations along that length of The
Loop will occur. We will stay in contact with Rio Nuevo and the City to provide updates.
Please use the east bank pathway during the course of this project. There will be detour
signing at the cross streets on either side of the work zone to remind you to switch to
the east bank. We apologize for the inconvenience, but the work is a necessary
environmental clean-up project.

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!
