This week’s route takes us on a meandering route north of Sun Lakes through Ocotillo to the Paseo Trail and then to the Islands of Gilbert. From there, we go east a short distance on Warner to return via the Paseo Trail to Queen Creek Road for a lunch stop at Kneader’s Bakery & Cafe before returning to the Cottonwood Clubhouse via Jacaranda, Ocotillo, Dobson and Robson. Wheels down at 9 am. Total distance is 33 flat miles mostly but not entirely on lightly traveled roads and bike paths. This ride is no-drop and the pace will average 14-16 mph. It will be chilly with light northerly breezes on Saturday so dress warmly!
