Biking in Scottsdale and Phoenix
The road biking opportunities in Arizona’s largest metropolitan area offer some of the best on-pavement riding you can find during the winter months with a variety of heart-pumping climbs and rolling scenic drives. Scottsdale and Phoenix are young cities with new roads and wide bike lanes. The desert in and around the city offers a unique backdrop for scenic on-pavement riding right in town. Check out our Road Bike Routes below.
Imagine a city where the sun always shines and there are hundreds of miles of singletrack within an hour’s drive of the center of town. That’s Phoenix. The city and its surrounding suburbs like Scottsdale, Tempe, and Mesa, has been granted the “Ride Center” designation by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) in recognition of the variety of riding experiences and opportunities that abound here. Enjoy trails purpose built for a range of skill levels in Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve, check out the world-famous competitive track at McDowell Mountain Regional Park home to the original Specialized Cactus Cup, or ride the gnarly chunk on the locally legendary National Trail at Phoenix’s South Mountain Park. Come prepared for sunshine and cactus and leave with a smile on your face.
