    NW Phoenix Rides please, Thanksgiving weekend.

    I am bringing my road bike this year for the Thanksgiving weekend. I am hoping to get a couple of 25-40 mile rides in while there. We are staying around 91st and Peoria. Any hints on good road rides? Club rides?
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    Not familiar with that side too much. But go to this site:

    http://www.azmag.gov/Communications/publications.asp

    Scroll down to the "MAG Regional Bike Map 2012" and download the pdf.

    It looks to me like you're going to be near the New River MUP. Which connects to the Arizona Canal MUP. Or there are lots of marked bike routes in your area.

    If you're looking for something interactive, have you tried the bicycle feature on google maps? Get into the area you're interested in, select "get directions", then select the bike. A warning about it though. It seems to be hit and miss. Sometimes it misses obvious routes and other times it points to what I consider unsuitable routes. So if you use the google bike map feature study the satellite pix carefully. Good riding.

    We ride on Sundays from Bicycle Vibe, about 15-20 miles Northeast from where you will be. They also have rides on Saturday morning.

    Thanks for the info. I was hoping to ride out my door and be on a bike route within a couple miles. I could drive to the Saturday morning ride though. I will keep it in mind.
