With rain forecast for the next several days, be sure to check with the host of the subsequent rides to see if they will be held. Contact information for each host is below.

The 8(ish) Days of Xmas ride series is back!  The 8(ish) Days was started in 2007 when some Tucson locals decided they wanted to ride every day between Christmas and New Year’s, and it’s grown into a showcase of the amazing trails and riding community in Southern Arizona.  It’s a chance for folks to get out with the organizations and clubs that make Tucson a great place to live and ride.  So come on out, try some new trails, make some new friends, and celebrate the holidays by bike!  All are welcome for all the rides, but make sure to check out the events for info about trail difficulties.
