Local Info

This area has many nasty washes that can mislead bikers and hikers as optional shortcuts. It also is prone to flooding during the two major wet seasons in Arizona. Signage often gets stolen or amended and there are a few hunters that ignore bans on shooting. Cell phone coverage has improved recently.

Food & Drink

Red White and Brew is a great food stop after a ride.

After the Ride: Local Favorites

The Bagel Man 1 of my top 3 favorite bagel shops in Phoenix. They "get" NY style bagels. Large, but chewy, not fluffy, with a nice boil for texture. Cream cheeses have generous amounts of flavor.
5035 E Elliot Rd, Phoenix AZ — (480) 705-9999
Chick-fil-A The people are so nice!!!! Always give 4 sauces and they walk around to ask if you want free refills !!!!
5035 E Ray Rd, Phoenix AZ — (480) 961-6006
Spinato's Pizzeria Try the sandwiches :)
