Rentals:

Did you know you can apply the full price of a rental fee towards the purchase of a new bicycle? This offer is good for 30 days from the date of the rental.

All bikes come with standard platform pedals, but we encourage you to bring your own clipless pedals and shoes. We will happily install and uninstall the pedals for you. Rentals are for a 24 hour period beginning with the time you pick it up so plan accordingly with our store hours to avoid a late fee. Remember too that someone may have reserved your bike and is now waiting.

Helmets and locks are each $5.00 per day and you can now rent an emergency pack in case of a flat for only $10.00 per rental bike.

The pack consists of a spare tube, patch kit, tire levers, pump, and a seat bag to carry it all. There is no extra charge if you need to use the tube or the patch kit; however, you will be charged if you lose the tire levers, pump, wrench or seat bag.

For the serious and not so serious rider who is maybe visiting the area, perhaps to stay in tune and get some miles in or even compete in one of the many multi-sport events which take part in our area Including the IRONMAN EVENT.

For the recreational rider, there are many paths and trails which begin a short distance from our stores.

Mountain biking in our rugged terrain is a plus and there are various trails within easy reach.

 

 PLACES TO RIDE.

For the road rider, our local ALP is the climb of SOUTH MOUNTAIN. A joy to ride if you are slightly mental, but a brute if you are normal...the view from the summit is superb.

It is possible to ride out to the base from our locations but when time retraints come up, many people drive to the base and park at the RANGER STATION.

The road to the top is actually Central Avenue in Phoenix, and can be reached by riding or driving along BASELINE ROAD  

Heading West, turn left at Central and proceed to the RANGER STATION.There are more streets heading to the base but although they are known to the locals, they can be confusing for visitors.

A mile into the climb comes a junction which heads out to SAN JUAN PASS..this is a good diversion for extra miles and is out and back,,,try and slot it in before or after the main climb .Back at the junction, turn right and head on up the hill ...a very steady climb but quite easy on the GIANT DEFY. At the very top, it kicks up towards the microwave towers.

The descent is awesome, but take it steady and watch for cars and errant cyclists who may be wobbling their way up the hill. At the bottom, a rest stop and water fountain plus a soda machine,,,Brilliant.

Since the IRONMAN uses the BEELINE HWY as part of its route, many locals use it for training purposes. From any of our stores, head East to COUNTRY CLUB DRIVE,,then turn North, under the freeway and you are already on the long wearing climb., all the way to SHEA BLVD. This is where the IRONMAN returns but try and keep heading North up to the turn off to BUSH HWY and then return..this entails more climbing and of course more descending coming back ( a 50 mile journey).

Or, at SHEA, turn left and into FOUNTAIN HILLS...pick up the road to RIO VERDE along the valley and return from there...again about a 50 mile jaunt.

For the brave and valiant, when up at the BUSH turn off, turn right, descend past the lake and climb GODZILLA then along the river bottom to the last climb...GRANITE REEF or KING KONG..pretty much a ski-jump climb but easier than if you turned earlier at the junction with USERY PASS...At the top of either of these climbs...edge to the West whilst fast descending and end up at Gilbert Road and not far from COUNTRY CLUB DRIVE., or the starting point. Our road-bikes have dual bottle cages which are needed in our particular climate..Pick up a couple of TEMPE BIKE bottles as momentos.

FOR THE MOUNTAIN BIKE RENTER;

Many, many trails to ride...the nearest to both stores is PAPAGO PARK..These can be seen from the town lake, in the red bluffs, just NORTH of us.

These are very popular with local enthusiasts and there are easy trails towards the bottom in long loops and are ideal for testing and tweaking the rental bike ( and getting used to the climate)..as skills progress, climb higher up the trail as it becomes more difficult.

There is plenty of parking with Ramadas and ideal for a picnic during or after your ride.

Next would be SOUTH MOUNTAIN PARK easily accessed from THE POINTE which is at Guadalupe and Baseline Roads...nice basic trails for the beginner ranging to savage for the more experienced..there are always plenty of riders out there who would help with directions..Parking is plentiful.

Another favorite trail-head is out at MCDOWELL MOUNTAIN PARK. this needs driving time and is North, up the BEELINE, Through FOUNTAIN HILLS and along the RIO VERDE road..the turn-off into the park is about 3 miles down the valley.

There are 3 main rides in this park, 2 of which are pretty technical and have been used in the CACTUS CUP RACES, but are ridable for all and then, further into the park is the PEMBERTON TRAIL ..this is fantastic riding, about 15 miles long with varying terrain and after climbing for ages,, there comes along a smooth descent to the start again,,try to do it a couple of times whilst out there, it's magnificent.

COMFORT BIKE CRUISING.

A popular ride from the store is along the GREEN BELT or the INDIAN BEND WASH..It starts near the RURAL ROAD bridge and heads up to SCOTTSDALE and beyond on excellent pavement, plenty of cafes and watering holes along the way.

From KIWANIS PARK, GUADALUPE and MILL, take the newest paved trail Eastward...passing the golf-course cafe, which is cyclist friendly, and good for a morning Java..and maybe head all the way out to LINDSAY ROAD in GILBERT...a 20 miles out and back but with plenty of turning points, traffic lights on the pedestrian crossings of the main roads, water stations, lighting and benches...a very nice leisurely ride on a GIANT CYPRESS. 

Free maps of Tempe and Maricopa county are provided. Other detailed maps are also on sale.
