UC SANCTIONED RACE (Race is only once a year out there – usually in January) AND UC GROUP RIDE ON TUESDAY NIGHTS (group ride every Tuesday night year round) IS LOCATED ON THE SE CORNER OF 7TH STREET AND DEER VALLEY (NORTH PHOENIX) – BEHIND THAT BIG FBI BUILDING ON THE CORNER.
YOU WILL SEE A LOT OF VACANT LAND AND SOME CONSTRUCTION STARTING TO HAPPEN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COURSE (AS OF JAN 2014). YOU WILL ALSO SEE TONS OF CYCLISTS TOO – PRETTY EASY TO FIND!
*** No Bathrooms out here so do your business before you show up!
*** No water, so bring at least 2 bottles! (3 in the summer! -Bring water for others if you can!)
*** Usually no cars (unless someone is lost and drives on the course which can happen), no stop signs, 0.8 of a mile around, lit by street lights at night, and a 1-3% grade hill every lap. New pavement. Super wide. Bring your A game!
*** Neutral environment! All athletes welcome! (Heck, people training for Ironman, run around the course while we ride!). Mountain bike trails at the course too (state land entrance is at the bottom of turn 2 – mountain bike trails on the EAST side of the course for all to ride!)
** MUST HAVE A FRONT AND REAR LIGHT WHEN IT GETS DARK – IT IS THE LAW IN ARIZONA!
