Possible Cancellation of the Mt Lemmon Hill Climb


Regretfully, we are at a crossroads with Pima County over the issuance of the Mt Lemmon Hill Climb permit. GABA is being asked to provide a cost-prohibitive insurance policy, before the county will approve the permit. If Pima County insists and stands firm on this requirement, GABA has no recourse but to cancel the ride that is scheduled to take place on Friday, May 16.
The GABA Board of Officers are very hopeful that this issue can be resolved, but feels it is in the best interest of the public to make them aware of this possible action. In the event of a ride cancellation, it will be effective Friday, May 2, two weeks from the ride date. We know that many are coming from out of the area, and we hope that a 2-week window might allow enough time for riders to make alternate plans.
This is a hard message to convey. We are keenly aware of the love hundreds of folks have for this very popular GABA supported, annual ride up to the top of Mt. Lemmon and back down.  Please stay tuned. We will let you know the the very May 2nd.
What does a GABA Supported Ride Leader or Ride Volunteer do?

Have you ever given any consideration to leading or volunteering for a supported GABA ride? Maybe you have led a ride in past years, but would like a little refresher before tackling the assignment again? Maybe you are just curious? If any of these statements apply, you are in luck.

On Saturday, May 3, GABA will sponsor a Volunteer Training Session that has been designed to explain what it means to volunteer for any Supported Ride position from Sweep to BAG to SAG to Organizing on special events, century and overnight rides.

The morning hours will zero in on what each special event or ride volunteer's specific position entails. The afternoon will include some 'hands-on' experience with Club ride files. To get the most out of this training, bring along your laptop for some practical application.

We will meet at the Ward 6 office, located at 3202 E 1st Street, from 9 am until 3 pm. Lunch break is from 11:30-12:30, and your food will be provided. Get ready to learn some interesting facts. Discover why volunteers are GABA's most essential and valuable asset!

RSVP is required for this training by Apr 30.
