i'll find myself in phoenix for about a week starting about a week from now. post-race, i'll have 4 or so days where i can just do some riding.
i'm a guy who is basically stuck indoors from november through april -- if i want to get in quality riding where i live, so this is a chance to race and then maybe do some of my workouts outdoors.
can anyone recommend some good places to ride? post-race, i'll be in scottsdale. i won't be taking all day to ride as i'll be with my family, but i'm thinking 1-2h monday to thursday. apparently i'll be near eldorado park.
on friday i'm heading up to vegas and may hit up a stage race saturday/sunday on the way back home. is there a good place to shake the legs out on friday afternoon (again, 1-2h)? time will be a bit limited that day, so proximity to the downtown area is preferred.
i'm very used to rural roads and don't expect that in those areas. pinning on a number will be my first outdoor ride of the year. i both love and hate that, but it happens every year.
thanks for any recommendations. perhaps i'll soon have something to contribute to the 2013 race report thread.
