    Finally back on a Bike!

    Moved out to west Phoenix in 2013 and since then my bikes have just sat in the garage collecting dust. The only action they have seen is a few trips up and down the street with the kiddos. Long story short, I just picked up a new rig and I want to start riding again. Thinking about going out Sunday morning to put in some miles and wanted to get some trail recommendations since Ive never ridden out here. Or if anyone is riding this Sunday and you don't mind me tagging along that would be great as well.

    Thanks

    Ray

    Goodyear Arizona has the F.I.N.S trail system and some more trail up on Estrella Mountain.

    Youre close to White Tank Mountain Regional Park. You have to pay to play there...

    For someone getting back into it, White Tank would be a good start.

    Ray, Check out the map below. The green and blue are non-technical. If you are feeling good ride the black for a rocky tech section, a switchback climb and some downhill.

    I use trailforks for my mapping and trail investigations

    https://www.trailforks.com/

    Plenty of riding out there, but probably not much outside your door.

    Thanks for all the help, I plan on checking out the trials in the White Tanks since they are close to me. I picked up my new Roscoe 8 this morning and couldn't wait until Sunday to ride. On my way home from the shop I went out to F.I.N.S. and got some riding in. Definitely a fun spot, I will be going back again for sure. I would post up a picture but for some reason this site is giving me issues and not allowing me to. Anyway thanks again for all the help.
