    FINS, McDowell's, and everything in between???

    Looking for conditions out at FINS and the McDowells. Its been a bit since ive been on my bike (read-a couple years). Pretty excited to get back in the saddle and just wondering what all the cool kids are doing out here now?

    Its been probably 3 years since ive been to either FINS or the McDowell's and now ive got a co-worker who's getting into biking so I told him i'd take him out. I used to ride the North Mountain Preserve alot (7th and T-Bird) and up off 67th and Happy Valley (whatever that place is called).

    Now, both of my kids are getting more excited about riding their bikes too so, its time to loose a few pounds and get back on it! Historically, when does Sunrise open for the summer? I've always wanted to go, and now I have someone who's willing to tag along!

    Thanks ya'll, and im happy to be back.

    Consider Browns Ranch as well. Great place for beginners and old fat out of practice people

    FINS is still awesome. probably better now than when you were there. Those guys keep adding trails, and improving the ones that are there.

    67th/Happy Valley is Deem Hills.

    Browns Ranch is fun, it's at roughly Pima and Dynamite. Worth the drive. Hella crowded on the weekends.
