    Boring Fitness Ride in Mountain Air, relatively close to Phoenix, Sat Morning 7/6

    I'll be riding Poland Road (aka Poland Junction Road) from about 5200 feet up through Breezy Pines
    and up to the summit of Mount Union at 8000 Feet. Ride starting point is about 1hr 15 minute drive from my house
    at Cave Creek and 101. I'll be starting the ride at 7AM saturday 7/6

    Poland Road is about 5 miles northwest of Mayer on 69 (road from I17 to Prescott)

    The ride has a total of ~3000 feet of climbing on very smooth dirt road... Last two times I rode it
    I rode past less then 3 vehicles/atvs on each ride...

    Anyone interested in joining me ? Warning : this is essentially a road ride without the traffic and
    beautiful pines/thin air....

    Is that the road that starts by the mountain with the tower on it? Starts in the scrubs?

    Have fun on you road ride... the road climbs up through a community called Breezy Pines and goes past Big Bug Mesa Road, and then I climb up to the summit of Mount Union... Mount Union has a fire lookout and some cell phone towers...
