Tuesday Ride Map
Saturday Ride - (Shootout) Map


Fair Wheel Bikes is home to some of the top group rides in the country. Rides are held every Tuesday and Saturday mornings. In the spring and fall, both rides are regularly attended by some of the top professional riders from the US and around the world.

Group rides start on University of Arizona's west side at University Avenue and Euclid Avenue.

Tuesday Morning Fast Ride (TMFR)

This ride typically has a group between 10 and 40 riders and covers approximately 35 miles of rolling terrain with a steep climb at the finish. The pace is high and staying with the front group is extremely difficult, but there are always people to ride with if you end up off the back.

The Shootout

The shootout is the Saturday morning group ride. The ride has groups of about 20 riders in the summer and well over 100 riders in the winter and spring. The terrain is fast and rolling with two sprints and a gas station stop about halfway through. The total distance is just over 70 miles. If you're looking for extra miles and some real climbing, watch for the turnoff to Madera Canyon on Duval Mine Road. If you want to take in the same route at a slower pace, catch the "scootout" or "old man shootout" leaving from the same starting location 15 minutes before the fast ride.
