April 29 (Sat) Saturday Cycling: 8th Street Ail - View Map
Start at 7:00 a.m. from Kiwanis Park. This new Ahwatukee Foothills route will include a few extra loops with little climbs, and one big loop with steep hills for the extended-distance option. This will be the first Saturday Cycling map that takes us north up 8th street from Chandler Blvd to Desert Foothills Parkway near the Telegraph Pass trail head, which I consider one of the steepest ungated climbs in the foothills. You beer drinkers will notice the title's reference to a flagship product from one of our state's greatest, previously independent microbreweries. I plan to complete the map and have it posted a week prior to the ride. Breakfast is at AZ Bread Co. Meet in the parking lot on the west side of S All America Way, south of the lake and north of the Sister City Garden. Contact: Ken St. John.
