Southern Arizona Sunsets Bike Tour, Part One

October 18 – 27 We spent the next few days at home preparing for what would now be an extended period of time away, traveling for a little over a month to North Carolina, Egypt, and then Mexico.  But first we’d take off for over a week and  meet up with Adventure Cycling to participate […]
