    ... and if we just ... Any info on surrounding Phoenix Trails

    Hello all,

    My brother recently moved to Phoenix and I am planning a road trip soon. Of course I will be taking my bike. Does any one have any suggestions on any good trails in the area. I am also looking for a good, local to Phoenix, message board to possibly meet up with some locals for a ride when I get there. Any suggestions and or links to good sites appreciated.

    This is as good a place as any to meet local fanatics who will show you around the area. There are some other local bike clubs that have message boards, but I don't belong to any of them.

    Anyway, where exactly in Phoenix does your brother live? This is a huge place, so recommendations will vary depending on what part of the metro area he lives in.

    I live on the east side of the city and recommend the following trails:

    1) Phoenix Mountain Preserve trail system -- Trail 100, Trail 1a, Trail 202. These trails cover a wide type of terrain, from fast hardpack to rock gardens to some steep stuff.
    2) McDowell Mountain trails -- Pemberton loop, Sport/Tech/Long loops. These are fast and fun.
    3) South Mountain part -- all sorts of great trails here with varying degrees of severity to meet any type of riding you want to do (Desert Classic, Mormon, National)
    4) Pima/Dynamite -- all sorts of loops to get lost on. These trails are fast.
    5) Hawes -- probably some of the best scenery around. And the trails are about as fun as can be.

    As I said before, all of these rides are in the east valley. If your brother lives anywhere on the west side, these can be a long drive to get to. There are some rides on the west side of town but I never venture that far.

    Thx...Doug
