Weekly Group Rides in Fountain Hills, Arizona

MMC’s Saturday Road Ride

Sat. 8:00 AM – From MMC (map)

Come ride our roads with us every Saturday morning! We roll from McDowell Mountain Cycles and finish back at the shop for coffee and snacks. Rides are typically 40-50 miles, with shorter options available.

As always, bring a helmet, flat-fixing stuff, and a smile and let’s have some fun on bikes!

Tuesday Night MTB Ride – “TNR”

Tues. 7:00 PM – McDowell Mountain Park – Four Peaks Trailhead (map)

This is an all-ability night mountain bike ride that’s become a staple of our area.

Tuesday Night Ride - MMC

We ride varied terrain and because our trails out here are so extensive, each week is a little different. Bottom line here: if you want to go fast, you’ll have someone to chase or follow and if you want to go slow, you’ll have someone who’ll gladly tag along. No one rides alone!

Roll at 7:00 pm from the Four Peaks lot across the road from the Competition Loops in McDowell Mountain Park. The best part is saved for last, where we break into our BYOB stashes and generally behave like mountain bikers. Helmets, lights, smiles, willingness to try mandatory!

Wednesday Women’s MTB Ride

Weds. 6:15 PM – McDowell Mountain Park – Competition Loops Lot (map)

14907148_10155517890149569_2295389206885051523_nThis is a LADIES ONLY ride 🙂 All abilities welcome. Bring a snack to share because afterwards we crack open a bottle of wine and relax a bit! If you’re new to mountain biking, or interested in trying it out this is a great ride with a small group of fun ladies to help you.

Need a bike or light? Stop by the shop beforehand and we can help you out.

Sunday Fun Day Gravel Adventure Ride (seasonal)

Sun. 12:00 PM – From MMC (map)

Our gravel/adventure rides roll from MMC at noon on Sunday and finish back at MMC for snacks and even a pint from our tap. These rides are 20-40 miles with options for all riders.
