This is all about riding long. Build your endurance. Do something epic. Climb mountains. We invite you to join us as we prepare for RAAM. Many of these “epic rides” have been a steady staple for our endurance racing team for some time. We are now organizing them into a single place with most of the relevant information all right here. For the most up to date information on meeting times, start locations, support, and more you MUST visit the team face book page event section. This is where we keep this info up to date:

We are extremely grateful this year to be supported by so many incredible sponsors. Check them out!

Gilbert AZ to Mt. Lemmon

Sat. March 23rd.  Leaving Bashas (Elliot and Higley Rd.) at 3a sharp.

Semi supported ride – be ready to self support. Sag vehicle to follow us to Lemmon. Then we need to arrange rides home after we descend Lemmon. Some water and sag support along the way. Once the climb to Lemmon begins it will likely be a self supported ride. If you join us you will need to help arrange your own ride back to the valley. We can only provide so much support on this one. If there is enough interest we can all pith in and get a charter bus to take us back… but likely there will only be about 15-20 if us – so we will need to rely on friends and family bringing us back.
