8:00AM-noon – Tour de Cookie Join ElliptiGO riders and many other cyclists for the annual Marana Rotary Club Tour de Cookie! Information and registration here. Note: Steve Hughes has created the team “ElliptiGO” in the event’s Team Registration section. If you register in that section, you’ll receive a $5 discount.
The ride generally goes west (out and back) on the Rillito River Path starting at the Rillito Race Track, so there would be no duplication of our Sunday ride route.
After the ride, we’ll partake in a casual meal at one of the St Phillips Plaza restaurants for those interested.
