The temperature on the way up to Mt Lemmon is 20 to 30 degrees colder then the Tucson area. Weather can also change quickly. Check weather day before the ride to know the conditions and bring appropriate clothing to keep your self warm. SAG volunteers will not take your clothing if you leave it at a SAG. You may not get your clothes back.
If you haven't ridden the Lemmon in a while (or ever), GABA can help make it easy. You can minimize the weight in your pockets because we provide four SAG stops, about six miles apart, with fluids, munchies, and healthy carbs. In honor of the pie shop that once operated in Summerhaven near the summit, the uppermost SAG will serve a variety of pies. You can also opt to buy yourself lunch at the restaurants in Summerhaven or Ski Valley at the top. In case something goes wrong, GABA provides vehicular sweep support to help with mechanical problems or provide a lift.
