Tuesday Night ride on the Greenbelt

This is a fun ride that winds from South Scottsdale around Tempe Town Lake and back. Most of it is off road (but paved sidewalk) and is about 12 miles roundtrip. It can be done at a leisurely pace and usually takes 60-90 minutes. Road or mountain bikes work. It's light a start time this time of year but it will is turning dusky/dark by the end so it's best to bring a headlight and tail light. Although the Greenbelt is lit pretty well, it is definitely safer to have the lights for visibility. After the ride we'll stop in at Duke's Sports Bar for drink and food (bring a bike lock so your ride will be safe while you're inside). Please try and be at the location a few minutes early so that you have time to unload your bike and be ready to ride at departure time - we'll wait 5 minutes for those that RSVP yes.

    I got there late but I think I saw you all heading south! I didn't realize the road was closed until I got to it. Turned back around and headed home. For me, that was a 15 mile round trip, regardless. Not bad. I'll have to adjust my schedule so I can make next week's trip on time.

    Next week we will go earlier. Mondays have MNF and less time for people to recover from their weekend forays...

    Mick, I thought we were going to start this earlier? If not, I may start earlier myself. No, I'm not afraid of the dark, lol!

    FYI - I just received notice that the greenbelt bike trail will be under construction for the next 6-8 weeks starting monday :( but it said they should be posting signs for alternate routes.
