This is an alternate to the Oro Valley Marana ride with the start point moved to 4th Ave at University Blvd to stay away from the UofA. Still has most of the top end of El Tour de Tuscon but ridden in the reverse direction. Danger points: River at Oracle, you have to cross three lanes of traffic. Do Not think that you can ride up Camino de Manana in Marana, it is NOT paved. Moore at Thornydale is a must turn up Moore or down Thornydale. Enjoyed this ride as has a LONG hill up Tangerine between I-10 and Thornydale. Good for heart rate work. Moore Road in Oro Valley has a wonderfully wide bike path. Oracle is bike path 100%. The roads in Marana are 35 MPH and Silverbell Road is being resurfaced and should be complete before the 2007 El Tour. Stop in Marana is the Circle K at I-10 and Grier, although you can stop at the Chevron across the street if you like (the Circle K is much better.) The stop in Oro Valley is the Conoco on Oracle.
