    I set the bead and then the pressure on Friday night and it was showing 14 rear and 18 front. I knew I was bouncing around a lot but when John handed me his pressure gauge in Oracle and it showed 40lbs I felt a bit better. Even though I was hurting all over it wasn't just an off day that I was going to call it.


    We bought a new pressure gauge on our way home. I still had a great time and also like that ride a lot. Definitely no pinch flats.

    Skip really wishing he had a good battery about now. Kickstarting a 4 fiddy ain't much fun on a hill.

    Rewind, backwards to home
    Looks like I went into energy conservation mode on the way back and only got one shot. This I think is what is called The Elevator.

    Really awesome ride - just hard enough to challenge my skills (which were left wanting). Beautiful scenery and a great bunch of people - there to help when needed!

    HTM thanks for hosting. Don't know how any of you made day 2! I was a mass of useless all day Sunday.

    Where to next weekend!?

    Great pics. What area is this? I've been thinking about planning a long weekend in AZ this year but don't really know where to find nice desert riding.

    The staging area is in Marana, just north of Tucson. Its a really fun intermediate level ride. Hit up HoosierTrailmaster. He and his Tucson crew are great people and know all the good stuff around the area.
