1 of 3 "Competitive Tracks" @ McDowell Mtn. Park near Fountain Hills east of Phoenix...INSANELY great fun...this ia a MUST ride. All 3 tracks were made for and by "us," and it shows (thanks Maricopa County Parks and Rec.) THESE tracks even have a BIKE WASH AREA! You are allowed to go as fast as you can pedal here (do be respectful though, and a crash into the wrong cactus could land you in the ER w/ or w/out the cactus attached to you)...try the Pemberton loops just up the road as well...

08/08/07 THIS RIDE IS GREAT...YOU MUST TRY IT...it was made by and for mountain biking, think I like the Sport Loop better (which is cleaner and faster, more 'rolly')...but the long loop has lots of most excellent sections...
