cycling in tucson

8.18: proj.mobi/find places to chill:

. broadway has nice shot to river as bus lane is all yours .
. south on columbus gets sparse as approaching airport .

tucson places/trails park:
GPS: 32.226283, -110.833534
-- . fenced off space -- not for a bike ride in solitude
just off broadway's easy-biking route .
from broadway, past kolb,
Turn left at N Avenida de la Vista 0.2 mi
right at E Calle Managua 0.2 mi
-- google street view shows that once you get here, a fence stops you .
Continue on N Gateway City 0.1 mi
N Gateway City, Tucson, AZ 85710
. going at it from the north (speedway&kolb):
right at N Kolb Rd 0.2 mi
left at E Rosewood St 0.4 mi
right at N Gateway Circle
.. there is a dead-end with a nice sidewalk going nowhere .
I think what the many roads are may be a developer's earthmoving,
or from the empty lot nearby and a power generating station next door,
it might have been the old site for the generator .
. it also has the road designs of mini-airport .
. it may be closed so cars don't race on it .
the tracks look well-worn, but without veg'growth
those tracks could be ancient .

. there is a green trail (bikes only) branching from broadway to
old spanish trail down to dan yersavich memorial parkway,
up to the edge of saguaro nat park .
