What we're about

Bike rides along the canal and various trails. Rides will vary in distance, speeds and starting points. Starting at The Trailhead Cafe on 16th Street & Glendale going east to Scottsdale or even Tempe is one of my favorites. Starting at 47th Ave. on the canal (between Peoria & Cactus) going west is also a good ride, or riding through the Biltmore area. We can stop for coffee/brunch/lunch/dinner/ or ride just to enjoy the scenery and some good company. Speeds will average approximately 10 MPH - 16 MPH; check each ride for description of speeds and distances. The goal is to get out and enjoy the weather, good company, and the ride itself. Night rides require front and rear bike lights, and lights are suggest for all rides. Helmets are absolutely required, no exceptions. Anyone can lead a ride; it's fun to discover new places, so I encourage you to lead YOUR favorite ride. Let's get out and have some fun!

Please feel free to suggest rides to me, I'm all in favor of trying new routes, or just new starting points. :)

Happy Riding! :)

This ride will be mostly along the multi-use path along the canal between Camelback Ranch and Rio Vista, a little less than mile at the start and end will be on 107th avenue from the CVS parking lot to the canal entrance, and all road crossings are under the road. If you do need to turn around and go back for any reason please let someone on the ride know your intentions. I have the ride set for 2 hours, but it likely won't take that long depending on our stops. Please be on time, I plan to be there a little before 630 myself, we will take off at about 6:35-6:40. We will stop to regroup if anyone does fall behind, and there are bathrooms at Rio Vista which is the half way point on this ride.
