2024 Ruta Del Jefe: En Cuenca Los Ojos de México

Reportage

2024 Ruta Del Jefe: En Cuenca Los Ojos de México

After a two-year hiatus and a mission to find a new event location, Ruta Del Jefe relocated from Appleton-Whittell Research Ranch in Arizona, US, to Cuena Los Ojos in Sonora, México. The 2024 event was nestled in the hills of Cuenca Los Ojos conservation ranch just south of the Arizona border, straddling the line between biomes, states, and countries.

While the event was, of course, a weekend full of riding bikes across beautiful terrain, it was also infused with workshops, informative presentations, bird walks, dancing, coffee, chocolate, and incredible local food.

With its redoubled focus on advocacy, community, and stewardship, Ruta Del Jefe stands out among the myriad cycling events these days as a singular experience. Make sure to check out our mega gallery and multiple perspectives from this impactful event below in both Spanish and English…

Fathom Events Presents: RAD – 2024 Movie Screenings

If you’re a cyclist of a certain age, you may be able to trace the genesis of your obsession to the campy 1986 classic, RAD. The story of one talented BMXer’s cliché-ridden rise from paperboy to pro, RAD was famously in limbo for decades as a battle for the rights kept it off the shelves. But that’s been settled, and there’s finally a 4K remaster back in circulation. And on Thursday, March 21st, marking 38 years to the day since its original release, that 4K version is being shown in theaters across the country. The re-release is being run by Fathom Events, where you can find a screen near you that’ll take you back to Helltrack. Just don’t over-rotate.

From Madrid to Tucson: The 2023 Komoot Women’s Arizona Rally

Last fall Cristina Maristany joined 70 other riders from all over the world in the Sonoran Desert for the Komoot Women’s Arizona Rally designed and hosted by Lael Wilcox and Rue Kaladyte. Over eight days, the self-supported group camped under the stars and overcame the challenge of traveling through remote zones with limited food and water. The total route was over 400 miles (650km) and 25,000ft (7,600m) of elevation through breathtaking Southern Arizona landscapes.

Below, Cristina recaps this spectacular ride with her own wonderful photos, in addition to a gallery from event photographer Ashley Gruber, and a video she produced about the rally….

2024 Single Speed Arizona: If You Find It, Look For It

Single Speed Arizona (SSAZ) is an annual gathering that takes place every year during the first weekend of February. Part family reunion and part celebration of bikes running on one gear, it moves around to a different hosting location annually and takes advantage of southern Arizona’s favorable weather and exemplary singletrack riding. Josh Weinberg and Chris “Dirty” Reichel were in attendance at this year’s event, which saw a solid turnout of riders and volunteers descend on West Tuscon for a weekend of stout trail riding and (for some) even stouter partying…
