OPMC Cowboy and Indians Ride

April 17 @ 8:30 AM - 2:00 PM


Old Pueblo Miata Club
Cowboy and Indians Ride
April 17, 2021
I am happy to lead this ride (we all know there are only so many ways out of Tucson). Seeing the marker up on old Historic US 80 (now SR79) I got intrigued by the person Tom Mix. In addition I found that the original “Indians” of the Sonoran Desert lived not too far away. Thus, I thought this would be a great theme for a “Cowboy and Indians” Ride.
When: April 17, 2021
Where: Meet at Bashes on N. Oracle near Saddlebrook at 8:30 AM
Leader: John McAlister
This will be about a three to four hour ride with a Brunch Stop at LB’s Restaurant in the old section of Florence. After brunch we will make a stop at the Casa Grande Ruins. There is no fee to enter the park.
We will return to our starting point via paved roads avoiding I-10.

    • Geoff & Molly

      And…Molly reminded me of the vet visits scheduled for Saturday morning. That precludes our involvement in this run.

    Thanks John, see you at Basha’s 0830 April 17

  4. Faith & Dennis Holt

    It’s a go with the Holt’s John. Thanks for pulling this together.

    Hi John, looks like a good drive. Cathy and I will see you at Basha’s.

  6. Leslie Clark

    Les Clark will make this run, Miata willing.

  7. Christine Hennessey

    I plan to be there probably with a passenger since it’s a Saturday trip. The restaurant website indicated that they were only doing takeout. Are there enough outdoor tables?

  8. Paul Lewis and Randi Williams

    Paul and I plan to attend. Sounds fun even though we have been to the ruins several times.
