Preparing for ongoing drought on the Colorado River

Cyberspace has been humming these last few weeks with news that the likelihood of a shortage on the Colorado River has gone up to 57 percent likely for a shortage condition in 2020. For the man on the street, that sounds like a good chance that it won’t happen, and 2020 seems like a long way off. Think again. What if you received that diagnosis as a likelihood for having a serious heart attack?

You’d get up and do something about it.

Brian McNeece, our cycling blogger, took up cycling 12 years ago. Since then he’s averaged about 4,000 miles a year, including racing. As a 55 year-old, he pedaled the Tour de Tucson and has organized 7 nationally-sanctioned series of bike races.
