Upcoming events (4+)See all
- Monday Gravel (or short road) Ride - Wagoner RoadNeeds location
Wagoner Road is located just past Kirkland Junction on the left hand side of Highway 89, but for parking turn right on Kirkland junction and park in the dirt area on your right. You can do a shorter road ride of about 22 miles or add the gravel section for a combined road/gravel of about 41 miles and 3000 feet of climbing. As an out and back ride you can make this ride whatever distance you choose. (You can even continue for more miles on the gravel, but warning it does get much steeper and rockier beyond our turn around point). There is a very short section of gravel at the very beginning of the ride but it quickly turns to pavement.
This is a really beautiful area with very little traffic and the section with the gravel is relatively smooth. We will regroup at the Hassayampa bridge and at the turn around spot. I hope to see you there.
- Monday Road RideFry's Food, Prescott, AZ
Start at Fry's on Willow Creek. Will make CCW loop around Prescott. Up Pioneer Pkwy, in on Williamson Valley, in on Iron Springs, onto Gail Gardner. Through town, then out Hwy 89 through airport and back to Fry's on Willow Creek.
Around 28 miles, 1500 ft climbing
- Truckin' Tuesday - Kirkland to Hassayampa BridgeKirkland Bar & Steakhouse, Kirkland, AZ
Come on out for a really nice ride to the end of the road just beyond the Hassayampa Bridge. Starting from the dirt lot across from Kirkland Bar & Steakhouse, we'll take Kirkland Valley Rd to AZ-89. Turning right on AZ-89, we'll continue the short distance to Wagoner Rd. Turning left on Wagoner, there's a short climb up a very compacted (and navigable by road bike) dirt section of the road until it levels off and the pavement begins and we make our way to the other end of the pavement. The route is approx 31.4 miles, with an elevation gain of 1889 feet.
Truckin’ Tuesday rides are geared toward Intermediate riders and those seeking a moderately challenging ride. Routes are on paved roads in Prescott and the surrounding communities. Rides vary in distance and degree of challenge each week, are at an easy-to-moderate pace, have regroups & stops as required, and are no-drop. Rides start at the posted times and all who have signed up should arrive early and be ready to roll on time.
- BP’s Adopt-A-Highway Clean Up 🌻🌾🌾Gabby’s Rustic Eats, Chino Valley, AZ
Early October should have fine weather, so let’s once again do our part to keep our mile of Highway 89 clean for the spring wildflowers. We will meet at the parking area of Gabby’s Rustic Eats (formerly the Bonn Fire Restaurant) in Chino Valley on Saturday morning at 9:30 AM.
Please wear long pants, long-sleeved shirt or jacket, solid-soled full-toe shoes or boots, and a hat for the sun. Safety vests, gloves, trash bags, and the trash pick up tools will be provided, although you may bring your own vest, gloves, etc. if you have gear that you like.
All participants will have to sign off that they have reviewed the AZ DOT safety material which can be found at: https://azdot.gov/business/programs-and-partnerships/adopt-highway/safety-requirements. You are not required to view this material if you have seen it previously – although, if it’s been a while, it may be a good idea to refresh your familiarity with this information.
There will be muffins and coffee set out by 9:00 AM. I hope to see you there!
