El Tour de Zona 2023, Day 0: Getting My Feet on the Ground (or Pedals)

It was a day of orientation.  I blew into Sierra Vista and was the first tent to set up on the baseball field (right near first base). Matilda made herself right at home as any good mascot would.

The commemorative jersey is color and not ASU colors.

Met a (fast) tandem pair from Las Cruces, NM.  Would see them multiple times over the next few days as they were fast and rarely in traffic!

Dinner that first night (Thursday) was a Sonoran hot dog. Something about a tube steak on fry bread smothered in Mexican taco fixings.

The map of day’s “ride” was really a warm up for the coming weekend.
