HS MTB #4: We will leave on Saturday, Nov. 9th as we have for all others to go pre-ride the course, camp out, and be ready for a great race on Sunday. With Ignacio out of town, we would love continued and more help from parents (who have been awesome thus far!) to make it all happen. Please let us know ASAP if you are able to go and help out. Thanks!
GABA Bike Swap Meet: November 16th
As tradition goes, El Grupo will be running bike parking for all attendees, selling our homemade baked goods and donated clothing/items that don't work for El Grupo, and spreading the word about who El Grupo is out at the Swap Meet. Look for a doodle poll sign up soon for volunteer positions for youth and adults - and be ready to start baking!!
Pre- El Tour Dinner: Thursday, November 21st, 6pm
Our annual potluck dinner to celebrate teamwork and get ready for El Tour will again be on the Thursday prior so as to make sure everyone gets a good night sleep on Friday. Leo and Cara's parents have generously offered their backyard again, and expect to sign up soon for what you can contribute to the meal and fun celebration.
El Tour: Saturday, November 23rd
El Grupo will support three teams this year for the first time! We have solid teams for the 60, 85 and 111 mile events, and look to have lots of fun with the rides. El Tour is not a race, at least not how we see it. It is a community event that we get to enjoy riding with thousands of others. Help will be needed with transportation and support out on the course...more on that later in the month.
Cyclocross after Thanksgiving: December 1st
We will have some good rest after El Tour and be ready to burn some turkey off. This cyclocross race is in Tucson, and will be a fun opportunity to check it out for the first time for some, and just have fun with it for the rest. This will be the only one in town that we get to do this year so come on out - best cycle spectating around!
