EPIC Rides are for everyone. This one to Globe AZ and back from Gilbert AZ.

So last year a few of us rode our bikes to Globe AZ and back. It was a long day leaving at about 3am. Awesome ride with about 140 miles and 8,000+ feet of total elevation gain. This was one of my fondest rides last year in preparation for our LOTOJA race. This year it’s just worth repeating no matter what we are getting ready for! Beautiful and challenging. Come join us. I have the itch to do that again! Leaving this Saturday – May 7th, 2016, rolling out at 3am from the Basha’s parking lot on Higley and Elliot in Gilbert AZ. I Know a few members of the team/group will be joining us just to Superior then headed back (a total of about 80 miles). The full ride to Globe and Back should put us home between 10:00am and 11:00am depending on flats, water stops, etc.

As far as I am concerned all are welcome. Want to come test out your cycling endurance? This is a good opportunity for that! The ride is unsupported. Be sure to bring some $CASH$ for the gas station stops along the way so you can buy some Coke, a banana, or whatever you need to get through the ride. It is about 70 miles one way with a stop in Gold Canyon and Superior, turning around in Globe. In all three towns we stop to refill water bottles. I typically bring 2 bottles.

Superior TunnelWe will likely hit most of this ride in our upper aerobic zones averaging 18-20. Most of the climbing is all out to Globe. But don’t be fooled by the return trip… there is still some climbing left to do. However once we hit the “Top of the World” (a real place along the route) on our way back it is largely downhill the rest of the way and fast. I think last year we were averaging 30-35mph without too much effort most of the way home.

Cruising downhill through the tunnel last year was a rush! There is a chance we were going way too fast. Good times.
