I live in midtown. I do a lot of urban biking on stairs downtown and such. Always in the middle of the night though, since I'm an evening worker.

I would forget the commuter unless you don't mind going 10 miles or more on it.
We have tons of Mountain biking. Depending on how expensive the road is, that is all you will need. I found commuting in Phoenix is well rather long. I average well over 10 miles a day. Most of my commutes are around 8 - 20 mi.

Im in chandler. Looking for a couple guys to ride in the east valley. There are two of us that ride on sundays, we're bigger guys, so if you looking for 20+mph avg, we're not the guys for you. Would enjoy talking to some other roadies too.

I'm also out Chandler way.

Would love to hook up for the Sunday rides, but El Tour de Tucson is just a couple of weeks away - we'll have to see what lines up for rides before Casa Grande Century

Group Rides

I live in Chandler and I started to ride with the GABA club which leaves from Kiwanis Park on Saturday mornings. A good website to check out is http://www.sportsfun.com/gaba/
Good luck

All types

Last saturday was the first time I rode with this group. There are all types at the event. In fact,
I am 49 and only a commuter; however, I didn't have any problem finding people to ride with.
We went 30 miles last week and I averaged 17 mph and pretty much was in the middle.
There are all shape of riders and I recommend the event.

Just moved to the paradise valley area from out of state a month ago. Been enjoying the mountain preserves until my bike was stolen yesterday.

The GABA rides are a real good mix of people on Saturdays out of Kiwanis. All levels and enough speed to motivate you to get better if that is what you want. Good people who give advice if asked in a very constructive way.

I really should do some of those Saturday GABA rides - it's not that far from Queen Creek and I could really use some advice. (if I can keep up - 14mph sustained is about the best I can do at the moment.)
