We did our first gravel ride in Tucson the other day. Really it was a mixed ride in that it started on the Tanque Verde Road and turned to dirt/gravel. The first part climbed up some switchbacks on road, then the pavement ended but the climbing didn’t. It was rough going in spots, but the views were amazing. We went out for a couple hours and turned around and came back.
We were treated to dinner at Mariscos Chihuahua and man was it good. I had smoked Marlin tacos and a couple Modelo Negras. There was an impressive array of hot sauces and I found a favorite in a habanero green sauce. mmmmmm.
