The ETT training rides this year will begin on Sunday, Sept. 8th 2019, and meet every Sunday up to November 17th with one exception. On Nov. 3rd there is a GABA supported ride, the Mountain to Mountain ride, which in itself offers several good El Tour warm-up distances.
We have four start locations with at least two ride leaders per location.
West side: Mercado San Agustin
East side: Udall Park
Northwest side: Tangerine/Thornydale
Ride leaders will post the rides on Meetup
First rides begin at around 40 miles and increase 8 to 10 miles every week.
For those riders wanting training rides for the 50 mile El Tour ride, a series of training rides will be held on the East side. These rides will include other bicycling needs such as basic bicycle maintenance, how to change a flat tire (and yes, you will participate), how to drink and drive, what to eat and drink on a long ride, and a few other topics.
East side: Sabino Cycles bike shop
First ride will begin at around 26 miles and increase 4 to 6 miles every week.
