36 Mile Ride - Gilbert Shop Ride!

Moderate ride through Gilbert and Mesa

  • Help newer road riders learn road riding etiquette and safety tips.
  • Help folks who want to get stronger and prepare for a little longer distance.
  • Lessen intimidation and help newer riders learn where they are with stamina/endurance.
  • Improve confidence with clipless pedals, learning to drink while riding and steadiness.
  • ALL without the worry of being dropped or unable to manage a flat.

This ride will be at an easy pace of 15 mph and a distance of 36 miles from Global Bikes in Gilbert and back depending on the group.

Riders should:

  • Be sure to eat a light breakfast of toast/peanut butter or oatmeal
  • Wear a helmet and bring a road bike
  • Bring plenty of water and a spare tube
  • Wear comfortable clothing
  • Be prepared for two-three hours of riding
  • Arrive 15 minutes early and be sure to pump up tires

Ride host for the beginner ride is Global Bike's very own David Sanders w/Will Foster riding sweep.

    The ride was great. It was my first large-group ride, and some guys cheerfully helped show me the ropes. The ride went faster than I expected, but that was a good thing, and I both enjoyed it and thought it did my body good.

    Do to popular demand , we are going to ride to Fountain Hills this Sunday. We will ride about 5 miles more than usual, but will not be riding as many hills. Should be a fun one, hope to see you at the shop. Thanks!

      We will go up Lindsey to McDowell, to Gilbert, and on to HWY 87, which will take us to Fountain Hills. Fairly straight forward. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
