The Sonoran Pirates (aka Son-Rats) is a team of mountain bikers from AZ, MI, CA, CO, MD, PA, UT, TX, ID & The U.K. The team was established in 2004.
Across the ranks they try and hold true to their fundamental belief that... "the only thing that matters is that you ride... not how fast you ride... nor the gear upon which you ride."
Tour De Safford - Post Event Report
Lacey & I didn't ride the Tour De Safford on Saturday. We opted to bring down the mountain bikes and ride Marijilda on Sat & investigate trails around Discovery Park on Sun. However, we did go out to the airport and check out the event.
The event had ~300 riders and 50+ runners in the four major events (104, 66, & 33 mile bike ride & a 1/2 marathon run). The start/finish line was at the Safford Airport which turned out to be a pretty cool spot to host the event. The festivities also featured a live band, car show, air plane exhibition, and motorcycle poker run/bike show. It was a fun and organized event and we enjoyed checking out the cars, planes, and motorcycles. Skander had a blast. I think next year we'll ride the race. Results - Event
Congrats to our friend Keri took 3rd in the 1/2 marathon run.
