Mount Lemmon is in the Top 10 rides list for avid roadies WORLDWIDE…and it’s in our backyard!
Meet @ 6:00 AM for 6:15 AM rollout in the McDonald’s parking lot. The route will be to the TV towers and the Iron Door restaurant. 😉
We’ll regroup at the top for breakfast at the Iron Door restaurant (be sure to bring some 💵)!
🏔 Miles: 64 (but only half of it is uphill) — the first five miles are relatively flat and serve as a good warm-up.
🏔 Elevation Gain: 6,000ft.
🏔 Please be sure to look at the route, including the elevation gain and gradients so you are prepared! There is usually a 20° F temperature difference between Tucson and the top of Mount Lemmon (I will update this event with weather information as we get closer to the event day).

Some helpful articles to help with preparation if you’ve not done this ride before:
Hawes Trail System Entrance
A number of people have requested a ride at Hawes, so were are so happy to have Lewis lead one for the group. Ride will be 8+ miles on blue trails. We will roll wildhorse to stinger loop, to wild horse and back on hi noon. Roll up to the main trailhead 10-minutes prior to start time and meet with the San Tan Shredders. We’ll do a quick introduction, tell a few lame jokes, then head off with our fearless leader for a “no drop” ride. All abilities are welcome to join in the fun. Trail ride is about 2-hours. Quote of the day: “No matter how slow you go, you’re still faster than a couch potato!” Bring your helmet (required), plenty of water and an extra inner tube in case of a flat.
So you want to get into mountain biking? Or do you need to freshen up your riding skills? If so, then this clinic is geared for you. No matter the reason, like any new sport, mountain biking can be a bit intimidating. To help get you rolling, join the San Tan Shredders for a 1.5 hour Beginners Ride. We will guide you through the pre-ride bike check, trail etiquette, cover basic skills, then we’ll get our wheels down on the easier trails. By the time you’re done, you’ll be a more confident and balanced rider. Let’s GO! A helmet is required and please bring plenty of water, snacks, and an extra tube. All riding abilities welcome. Meet 10-minutes prior to start of clinic at the main trailhead west of the Visitor Center.
This is an “Easy Like Sunday Morning” ride through the paved washes of Queen Creek. The cruising speed will be between 15-18 mph so a road or gravel bike is highly suggested.
Meet @ 5:15 AM at the parking lot next to Founders Park Splash Pad in Queen Creek for a 5:30 AM Roll-Out. This is a NOBODY left behind ride. The route will be through 2 different paved Queen Creek Washes with only 450ft of climbing and around 20-25 miles. The best part is...NO TRAFFIC (except rabbits)! Don't forget your water!
