    Just thought I would toss Prescott into the mix. I know the OP was talking February. Prescott is unpredictable at that time of year. But for now, it is the place to be.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I am in the SE Valley and actually like biking around certain parts of Gilbert. One of the canals does run close to where I live and it's a pretty smooth ride all the way to Baseline where the canal becomes unpaved after that.

    The challenge with the canal is how it crosses the streets of Guadalupe, Elliot, Warner, Ray, Williams Field, and Pecos. You will have to time your crossings carefully (Especially around Rush Hour).

    I do plan to go for the Tour de Tucson in November.

    I'm in Gilbert, also. I'm a newbie to cycling, well new to riding more than just a couple miles at a time anyways, and I've been doing a lot of riding on the canal paths lately. I really love those paths! No traffic and the scenery is much nicer than on the streets. My longest ride yet was 40 miles and maybe about 5 miles or less of that was on a road, although there were some non-paved sections that were pretty rough. Luckily my vintage bike has 650a tires which are thicker than modern road bike tires so they were able to handle it ok, still not recommended without a mountain bike imo. I believe it's paved further north of baseline. The eastern canal path is unpaved for a couple miles after you pass Broadway, then it's paced again for a couple miles and then back to dirt from Mckellips onwards to where it meets another canal just east of Gilbert rd and south of McDowell, and for several miles back around beside the other canal. You probably don't want to ride a road bike on the unpaved portions but if you make it up to that point where the 2 canals merge, there is a pretty nice view there

    I agree with rcs. The trails around my part of Chandler/Gilbert are not too bad. I tend to spend a LOT of time on the Paseo Trail in Chandler and have been riding south to see how far it goes.

    I did map a northern ride that involves the Paseo/Consolidated Trail, Powerline Trail, and the San Tan. That one equals almost 20 miles.
