Gravel Monday

Join us for our second adventure gravel ride led by Russell Cox! This one’s an intermediate level ride using a mixed surface route – paved road, singletrack and canals. After leaving the shop we’ll head towards Usery Pass, then along Wild Horse and Hawes. Good for gearing up to the Chino Grinder. We’ll work up our appetites and lunch at the Taco Shop after the ride!

Gravel bikes are best, but mountain bikes are welcome. Helmets required.

Gravel Ride Adventure

We are super excited to have the sought-after Specialized Creo SL available! To celebrate this gravel-road Ebike we are heading out on the gravel and hope you’ll join us to wear off a few of the post-holiday indulgences before the New Year. We’ll explore and ride for about 30 miles through and around McDowell Mountain Park, then stop at the Taco Shop following the ride.  All gravel and mountain bikes are welcome! (EBikes not required!)

This is a free event – there is no entry fee. This year we are fundraising for a local non-profit, Bob’s Free Bikes. They will be present at the start of the ride. We hope you will consider supporting their cause. Last year Bob’s contribute over 700 recycled bikes to our youth.

Fountain Hills Bikes and McDowell Mountain Cycles have teamed up to offer this unique ride around the Fountain Hills area.  This will be a fully supported ride for everyone.  Two distances are available, 50K (34 miles) and 100K (65 miles), with two aid stations along the route.  The 50K route starts and ends at Fountain Hills Bikes, while the 100K route starts at Fountain Hills Bikes and finish at McDowell Mountain Cycles.  Snacks and refreshments will be available at both bike shops for finishers. The two bike shops are two miles apart for those who care to park at one shop and finish at the other.

South Mountain Ride

Join us for a ride up to the South Mountain towers and the San Juan Parkway. The Park is closed to motorized traffic which allows for a safer cycling environment! Our ride will be about 33 miles. Climbing will be a bit over 3000′.   We will start from the Starbucks at Baseline and 24th street 8:00am. We’ll pick up any riders wishing to join from the park at 8:15. This is a joint ride with MMC. It also replaces our usual Sunday Recovery Road Ride.

This week’s Sunday ride will be on Saturday… join both bike shops as we ride to Needle Rock (26-30 miles) and back. On the way back, we will stop at the Rio Verde Fire station for pancakes before heading back to Fountain Hills. This will be a slow-paced fun ride.
