Over 8000 cyclists participated in this year's El Tour de Tucson. I was not one of them. For me it's thrilling enough just to be a spectator. The 109-mile bike race started downtown at 7:00 AM.
Most of the course was on paved roads, but eight miles into the course, the riders had to get off their bikes to cross the dry Santa Cruz River.
A mariachi band entertained the cyclists as they carried their bikes across dusty dirt path.
At the 48-mile point, riders had cross Sabino Creek which was also dry.
