Race #4 in the series is THIS Saturday at White Tanks. Pedal will be back on site with recovery drinks and snacks and Trek Bicycles of West Phoenix, and of course Bicycles of Phoenix! Lifetime events will also be onsite, perhaps with more raffle prizes for MBAA members… Be sure to get signed up before the price increase on March 5th at 8pm. The team point races are tight and the trail work done at White Tanks last week are bound to make this a great weekend to get out and ride. MARATHON riders – note we pulled in your start time by 10 minutes to 8:20am.

While most of you may have just got done putting in some hot laps at Old Pueblo, I’m quite sure a few more of you have never ridden in Tucson, and you are missing out. Don’t let OP be the only riding you do in Tucson. There are amazing trails down there, road rides that will take you up Mt Lemmon (everyone cyclist in AZ should do that ride) and some flat out gorgeous scenery. The fellas over at Tucson Bike Rentals and Tours can help guide you, or if you want to plan an outing with a large crew, offer up some rentals as well. Give them a like on Facebook or better yet book up your next adventure in Tucson with them.
We head to Lake Havasu for the third race in the series. The event is Saturday February 21, 2015. Book a hotel and stay the night (Friday and or Saturday) or take advantage of dry camping at the Rodeo grounds (amazing hosts). While in town – stop in Mudshark brewing, bring your race bib for 25% off. Mudshark has some of the tastiest beer (and food) in town – they support the series, are avid cyclists and flat out really good people. If you need last minute tune ups or spare tubes, be sure to pop in River Cyclery – also a sponsor of Havasu Havoc. Lastly, check out the Lake, the water is insanely clear, not like some of the water you may find in say…Tempe Town Lake.
We head out to Havasu for the Havasu Havoc on February 21. This event is presented by our favorite Havasu brewer: Mudshark brewing! While in town, be sure to try the Vanilla Caramel Porter or try their flight of beers! If you need any last minute gear, stop in the local shop in town (and MBAA supporter) River Cyclery.
REMINDER – get your hotels ASAP as they are booking up quickly!
We had an amazing turnout at Estrella, with close to 440 riders, amazing sponsors and phenomenal weather…not to mention HERO dirt. We saw some of the fastest times we have seen in quite some time on the long loop, thanks in large part to great conditions, as well as the trail work last week. Thanks again to Pedal Bike Shop for the refuel support, Fluid, Kate’s Real Food, Giant Bicycles of Scottsdale, Trek Bicycles of West Phoenix, Bicycles of Phoenix, and Lifetime Events for the outstanding support – we could not do it without you!
