Tour de Tucson
On November 15 and 16, John Messner, Garry Parlier, Steve Borosky, and Frank Woods drove to Tucson to cycle with the Rotary Team in the Tour de Tucson for the Ride to End Polio.  On Saturday,  John, Garry, and Steve each cycled 102 miles and Frank cycled 52 miles.  The weather was perfect, about 75 by midday.  However, it was cold at 7 am, the start of the 102-mile ride.  It was much warmer when Frank started the 52-mile ride at 10:30 am.  Just over 9,000 cyclists participated in the ride this year with about 80 riding on the Rotary Team.  
    John took this photo at the 100-mile start.                        Frank at the 50-mile start.
                                     Frank at the Rotary Club of Marana rest stop.

At the Rotary dinner Friday night, it was announced that just under $4 million had been raised so far for End Polio Now.  Thanks to many of our members who sponsored us on this ride.
On Sunday, the group left for the two day drive home.  
Bike Trail Project Phase 2
On Sunday, December 2, eight Folsom Rotarians and a partner installed the decking on the boardwalk that had been removed on November 10.  The city installed the joists so our crew just had to put the boards in place and screw them down which took about 5 hours.  
Photos of Phase 2, taken by Adrian Blanco and Frank Woods, have been added to the Photo Album called Bike Trail Project on our website.
