Tucson Training - April 1st (Recovery)

We woke up this morning to a cloudy cool day. Based on this and the fatigue in our legs from Mount Lemmon yesterday, the consensus was for us to make today a recovery day.

Six of us went southeast of Tucson on Old Spanish Trail back to the Saguaro National Park for two loops of the 8.3 mile National Park loop. Beautiful area! Total distance about 65kms. Then to Claim Jumpers for a huge lunch!

Did You Know? The saguaro blossom is the state flower of Arizona. In early summer, the Tohono O’odham people come to Saguaro National Park to harvest the saguaro fruit.

Sounds like a treat. I did a recovery ride yesterday too...rode for 10 minutes in a blizzard, then the rest of the ride got beautiful 5 degrees... :) I'll pay each of you $10 for the sweet Arizona air out of your tires on your return!
