Sept. 9th Fountain Hills Moderate Road Ride 35+ Miles, 15-16 MPH Avg.

Let's do one of my favorite rides, and head out from Fountain Hills. We'll start by the fountain, and head towards 9 mile hill. If it's under construction, we'll head down to Needlerock Park. If the road isn't closed, or under construction, we'll climb it if anybody wants too. Let's meet up at 0545, and head out at 0600.

This is an out and back ride, so the option to bail out is available at any point. This route is very popular with cyclists, so expect to see few bikes out there, with us. There are no hard climbs on this route, so don't be scared!

For those wanting to cut out a bit of climbing at the end of the ride, you can start at McDowell Mountain Park, and catch us as we go by. There is a fee to park, so bring $6.00 with you. If you're gonna start from the park, let me know, so we can meet you at the entrance.

I usually bring 3 bottles for water, if I'm gonna climb 9 mile hill. 2 works if I'm not doing the climb.

    I looked at his GPS file, and filed a dispute with the race stewards. He'll be lucky if he doesn't get a two year "vacation", like Contador!!

    Goes to show you that I can come from behind and take the highest place in the podium in the last mile of a very long and arduous race. Hahaha!

    Awesome ride with over 2000 ft of climbing. Nice route with almost no traffic. Whach out for the occasional snake crossing the road ;-)

    September 8, 2012

    Not too bad. I have a race tomorrow. If I'm not too sore, I will be there.

    September 7, 2012

  • Kevin H.

    I think about 45 minutes, if you take the 202 to Gilbert, then head up the Beeline.

    September 7, 2012

  • Tina C.
