Bike Trail Cleanup


Saturday, September 14, 2019

7:00 a.m.

We have a contract with Tucson Clean and Beautiful to clean up the bike trail near Dodge and River once a month at Brandi Fenton Park, 3482 E River Road. Stay for breakfast after. Please note that trash bags, gloves and picker uppers are supplied and we pick up trash for only an hour.

One of our members, Mango Mary, has started a new tradition after the clean up. We move to another location outside the park where we enjoy a refreshing Bloody Mary or Mimosa from our tailgates before we head to breakfast. We rotate who brings the libations each month. Come join in the fun and that "feel good" of giving back to our community. Come join us!


(But we hope you will join us!)

  • Tres Amigos (Kelly McGuire, James "Sunny Jim" White and Mark Mulligan - Friday, September 20, 7:00 p.m. Home of Russ and Tamyra. More info here.
