    Pics from a Tucson ride.

    Did a group ride today up on Mount Lemmon to escape the heat and play around in the trees.
    Hit Aspen Draw, Bug Springs, and Prison Camp. If you are looking for a great place to do some cooler riding this is the place. The air actually had a little chill in it when we started up towards 9000'.

    Here are the pics from today. Had a blast could have been a little better prepared to do bugs and prison but it was still a blast.

    I've never ridden Lemmon. This needs to be corrected. Looks good.
    Today's the day I eat bikes.

    I had a grand time shuttling Lemmon in April. Good stuff. And they've actually got DIRT on the trails, which I wasn't used to. I'll be back down for a week in October.

    Nice BW. Looked for you up there whilst taking "Mr. Biggensworth" for a hike. Was hoping to catch you and shuttle you guys if you needed. It was 61 degrees at the parking lot of AD. SO nice. One of these days we will ride!

    For everyone who hasn't done Lemmon yet Oct.24 we will be doing the Lemmon Drop which is from top to bottom. I think it is somewhere around 12000' of descending.

    Sweet, this could be my intro to Tucson riding.

    12,000 feet? I'd love to see a topo of the route on a Garmin Connect file.

    Be advised that the Lemon Drop's 12K' of descending comes with a whole bunch of climbing and traversing, so leave the FR/DH sleds at home and think epic trail bike riding.

    Here I think this is the profile of the ride from when Chad and Scott did it backwards meaning this was there elevation gain.

    And yes there is a good bit of climbing to be had SunDog is right you probably don't want to bring a downhill bike on this kinda ride.

    How about a rigid 29er SS? Great for climbing and some technical descending as long as there isn't too much chunk.

    I have done half of it on the 29er rigid SS. And there is a good bit of chunk on Milagrosa.

    google earth views of the Lemon drop

    So I guess the lemon drop would combine these rides going from top to bottom?

    Milagrosa is great. I wouldn't run it on a rigid bike or a hardtail for that matter.

    A complete Lemmon Drop: Aspen-Sunset-1918-Secret-Bigelow-Green-Bugs-Prison-Molino-Millie

    Expect to be out there for 6-8 hours If you get bored at the bottom and want more, swing a hard left and head over to climb Agua Caliente.
