NMTS Bike Jerseys – Possible Second Order

Everyone seems to like the new NMTS jersey design, and there have been a few requests to set up another order opportunity. This could be for a short sleeve jersey, for a long sleeve jersey of the same design, or for both. However, there are order minimums – 10 per gender for short sleeve jerseys, and 15 per gender for long sleeve jerseys. To gauge membership interest in another order, we have created an on-line survey using Survey Monkey. Please take this survey if you have an interest in a second jersey order; the survey will remain open until December 6th.

NMTS President Gordon Pegue injured at Tour de Tucson

Gordon Pegue has two broken ribs and a fractured pelvis after taking a fall in Tucson on Saturday, November 21. Gordon had completed the century ride and was heading back to the motel when he encountered the trolley rail tracks for the city cable cars and had his front wheel wash out.

Gordon was riding with John Sturtevant, Alex and Jane Zucosky, Jim Fordice among others when the incident occurred. Gordon was taken to the hospital where it was recommended that he recuperate for awhile. Jim Fordice and Dee Friesen are remaining with Gordon in Tucson until he is able to return to Albuquerque. He wants to reassure everyone that he is OK and has begun the healing process.

Update Nov. 24 7:30pm
Gordon is back in town resting at his own place.

Phoenix in January 2016
Don Simonson told the joke about Phoenix people. He said they don't have to go to church; they have heaven in the winter and hell in the summer.
Enjoy heaven in Phoenix this January 12 - 15. We leave ABQ on Tuesday the 12th, ride 13, 14 and 15 and return home the afternoon of the 15th.
We received a fantastice room rate at Best Western Inn in Scottsdale of $79.99/night.
