If you've never tried to conquer this beast of an Arizona mountain, it's worth your time to give it a spin. So many riders were out enjoying the challenge of 27 uphill miles -- taking you from the extreme desert heat to the cool, green pines and Manzanita trees swaying in the breeze at 8000 feet. Such a treat for the parched and sun beaten cyclists.
Even if you don't want to ride your bike to the top, take a day to get out to Tucson, drive up to the peak and enjoy the view. Did you know there is a ski resort up there? And giant plate sized cookies?
|This cookie filled the entire plate before I had my way with it.|
If you really want to make a day of it, head on over to Trisports.com to browse around the world's largest triathlon store. And while you're spending money, go ahead and book a night at Ventana Canyon or La Paloma for a five-star luxury getaway.
