WTF/QTBIPOC Intermediate Overnighter to Buenos Aires & Arivaca

October 29 @ 9:00 am October 30 @ 4:00 pm

$40 Suggested donation NOTAFLOF** supports our Bikepacking Gear Library (launching 2023)

Donation proceeds support our Bikepacking Gear Library, a program we are launching in early 2023 to expand access to bikepacking gear for underserved communities in Tucson. **(No one turned away for lack of funds) 

This ride is for WTF/QTBIPOC folks. Other folks are welcome to join our Intermediate Bikepacker ride to Arivaca on November 19th and 20th.

We’re headed to the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Area. This trip does have some challenges to it. We’ll call it intermediate level and not advisable as a first time bikepacking trip.

The terrain is mostly gravel roads with some rough and sandy sections. We recommend a minimum of 50mm tires.

We’ll be riding about 30 miles out to campsite 82 and then about 30 miles back the next day, passing through Arivaca.

We will be self-supported and do not have plans for a sag wagon to join us. There will not be water at camp however there is water available about 6 miles before camp as well as 2 miles beyond the camp on the second day. We recommend carrying 4 to 6 liters of water.

We will be contacting everyone who signs up for the ride to make sure they are prepared for the ride.

We will be parking our cars and meeting at the start of the route along West Arivaca Rd. and meeting at 9AM on Saturday morning. There is a pullout with parking, but this is remote unattended parking.
