About This Activity

This ride is a great first century or metric century. The terrain is flat, roads have low to moderate traffic, and if history repeats itself, the weather will be sunny with a high of 70! What more could you want? Try SAG stops with water, fruit, and snacks, and a great lunch at Dave White Regional Park in Casa Grande. Join up to 500 cycling friends for Phoenix Metro Bicycle Club's biggest ride of the year!

Tandems:

Add $15 for tandem rider

Remember where you used to live? The closest you came to riding a century in January was trying to get your old Buick started when it was 5 below. So join us January 13 for the first century of the new year. Then call all your friends in Minnesota and tell them what a good time you had! New to cycling or club rides? Try our 34-mile option. You’ll get one SAG stop, a route map and early registrants get a cool gift!

Fee prices increase starting 12/31, so sign up early! Maximum registration limit is 500.
