  • Arizona Bicycle Club (ABC) Granada Park Breakfast Ride
    Sunday mornings
    Five different speed groups from racers to casual "cruisers".

  •  The Hour of Power
    Tuesday and Thursday mornings
    This ride meets at 5:30 a.m. all year at the corner of Exeter and 64th Street in East Phoenix and goes around Mummy Mountain and then returns by the same route. The pace is fast, and the ride features close riding and fast downhill turns, so it is only recommended for riders who are comfortable riding in tight packs while cornering at high speed. Many of the riders who participate in this event are racers. More casual riders often remark that the people who participate in this ride are completely nuts. During much of the year, the ride takes place in darkness, so strong headlights are required.


  •  The West Valley Ride -- Estrella/Verrado
    This ride starts every Saturday at Lifetime Fitness, just north of I-10 near the Bullard exit on the northeast corner of Bullard and McDowell. The address is 14540 W. McDowell Road in Goodyear The ride divides into an A and a B group. The A group rides fast, and the B group proceeds at a more leisurely pace and has a no-drop policy. The Saturday route is 60 or 40 miles with several water stops, a few climbs, and uncongested roads with few traffic lights. There are A, B, and C groups, so there should be a ride for cyclists of your ability. Sunday's ride is a 35-mile recovery ride.
