Shootout Group Ride
Taking place every Saturday morning, the Shootout was named one of the best group rides in the country by Bicycling Magazine. The ride starts from the University of Arizona mall on University between Park and Euclid at 6:30 a.m. The ride rolls out easy for the first 10 miles but once the ride crosses Valencia it is game on. Get ready for a fast bike ride! The ride ranges in size from 60 to 150+ riders.
