I hear differently than you on the allergy problems. Seems that a lot of midwesterners have taken their grasses and trees with them to Arizona over the last 40 years or so. Not like it was back in the 50's and 60's. Certainly better than parts of So. California. Phoenix is hot as hell in the summer and I've even talked to locals that complain about the "Dry heat". Sort of like sticking your head into an oven, rather than a sauna (like New England or the Midwest). Still a unique and beautiful place, especially in the winter.

Arizona. It is warm most of the year and the other part of the year it is hot. But you can always ride in the evening or the early morning. But best of al no allergy problems. The air is way cleaner then So. Cal.
