Looks like the route was changed recently for the better. Last I had checked, it was on some difficult streets like Grant Rd, but now it is mostly on lower-stress routes like Aviation, Glenn, and Treat. The short course is even easier. Should be a lot of fun!

The best thing about this ride is the ability to determine your own route, maximizing or minimizing cookie stops, and going on less busy streets if you want! The Tucson Endurance Sports Examiner (me) will be there to interview all kinds of people on this great ride!
