Both are abundant around Tucson.

I learned mountain biking in Colorado and bushing past a limb or a bush is nothing on a single track. Tucson mountain biking requires much more precise train use.

Nothing recent, this from 2 years ago or so. Local cycling club members usually decorate a tree on the big rails-to-trails path. Don't think it happened this year but I haven't been over that way to check.

I only visit down there and that is usually in the late fall or early spring so sun and heat arenít that much of a problem.

I havenít found the cactus to be that much of a puncture problem when I ride down there. Iíve gotten flats from cactus here in Colorado but thatís prickly pear which has somewhat sharper needles. Goatheads here in Colorado are actually more of a problem. I got a flat from one in NOVEMBER!

tree in front of some bikes. I've learned it's best not to bring bikes into the room where The Tree is.

In this apartment of rather limited space, posing the bicycle in front of the tree would require a non-drive side shot. So of course I opted for behind the tree... Happy holidays!

Maybe not as classic/vintage as some of the above, but I just nearly finished building a NOS Y2K Kona Fire Mountain frame.

Got the Waterford 22 Series single speed out of the garage to ride this weekend. Already have 4 bikes in the house so I placed this one in front of the tree.
