It’s Rocky Point Triathlon weekend in Puerto Peñasco, which will be launching out into the Sea of Cortez come early Saturday morning and wrap up with one of the best post race fiestas around. Where the extreme tides of Puerto Peñasco have a been a tri challenge in the past, this year’s recent winds should make it interesting. Saturday drivers: Please remain alert to triathletes cycling along the stretch from Las Palomas out to the wind generator!
It’s our last weekend in April – can that really be? So, let’s get to it and run things down (or swim, bike, and run things down as it were).
Some driving tips – Yep, still:
* When coming from Sonoyta, veer right toward Laguna del Mar in order to meet up with Coastal Highway (turn left at stop sign after railroad tracks) and toward Sandy Beach. Fastest route to condos along Sandy Beach and Cholla Bay.
* Toward Las Conchas and east sides of town – turn left on Blvd. Josefa at first stop light (Blvd. Juarez detour). *Turn right at second stop sign to double-back to finished part of Blvd. Juarez and into town – or continue on Blvd. Josefa to eventually meet up with Blvd. Fremont
* IMPORTANT! New road work on Blvd. Juarez along stretch from railroad tracks near Circle K, past City Hall, and up to anchor heading toward port. Parts of this area are open (along dirt road) though extra caution encouraged at stoplight/intersection of Blvd. Fremont and Blvd. Juarez where pavement has been removed in prep for new roads. *Detour on East side of Shrimp Plaza (road in front of Fire Department)*
