Hi folks, for those of you who live in the Phoenix metro area (and more specifically the Scottsdale/Fountain Hills area) I wanted to let you of a weekly women's mountain bike ride going on on Thursdays at 3 pm in McDowell Mountain Park - which is north of Fountain Hills.

This is a beginner/intermediate ride open to women from High School age to whatever (and yes, we have a 70 year who has joined us).

We meet at the main staging area, beyond the Visitors Center. You take the right turn that is the first right after the Visitors Center. The time for the ride is 3 pm FIP (or foot in pedal).

If you want more information or want to see if a ride has been scheduled please see the Bicycle Garage AZ Facebook page at:

There are occasional rides on Saturdays as well.

If you are interested and need a ride to the park, meet at the Bicycle Garage in Fountain Hills on Saguaro Blvd. at 2:25 pm

We've gotten good turnout of 6-8 riders each of the 2 times we done this. I for one have learned a lot from the more experienced riders.

We'd love to have you join us.
