Tucson AZ Ride to Kitt Peak

May 25 2002

 

This ride was originally planned for Mt. Lemmon, but due to wildfires burning out of control we went with the alternate plan and rode to Kitt Peak national observatory. We had about 17 bikes in all with about 13 Vmaxes in attendance.

Thanks to all who joined us and special thanks once again to Bill Wheeler for ride planning!
