Moderate / easy-ish ride from North Shore Parking Area of Tempe Town Lake into Phoenix via Crosscut Canal Path. There's 2 or 3 hills, otherwise mostly flat. There are a few street crossings at traffic lights, but everything else is on a paved trail. Can add on a little extra distance and go towards scottsdale on different canal path if people want to. Probably go out for a drink/food afterwards.
This ride is out and back and we'll stop to re-group so don't worry about falling behind. It's along the canal, so the route is very flat. The ride is about 5.5 miles each way so it should be easily doable in around an hour (with re-group stops we're normally back by 8pm). Road bikes, mountain bikes and hybrids are all fine. There is about a 30 yard gravel backtrack to get to the paved path....so if your bike tires are really skinny, you may want to walk that little bit. Here's the route (http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/4010883/). Meet in the Moto (http://mrmotorising.com/) parking lot, we'll ride to I-17 along the Canal. Only one very minor road crossing... the rest are tunnels under the roads so no worries. The path is NOT lit very well so a light for visibility is a good idea. You may want something brighter if your night vision isn't great or you like to ride fast. The owner of Moto is giving us an awesome special... any rice and chicken bowl for $5.99 just for our group on this ride! And, of course, they have AWESOME BEER on tap as well as a full bar with everything else. SAKI BOMBER! Please try to arrive a few minutes early so you can be unloaded and ready to ride at Go time! We'll wait 5 minutes for those RSVP'd as 'Yes'.

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 15 miles roundtrip. It can be done at a leisurely pace and usually takes 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 RT O'Sullivan's Pub 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.
