[ARCHIVED] Prickly Pedal: The Mountain Bike Race That Lets You Rule the Desert

Prickly Pedal

On April 1st, hundreds of riders will participate in the Prickly Pedal Mountain Bike Race along the Maricopa Trail. This year, they will ride 40+ miles from Cave Creek to Lake Pleasant.

The race benefits the Maricopa Trail and Park Foundation, a nonprofit organization committed to funding maintenance of the trail and drawing more people to it. Last year’s inaugural race featured nearly 300 riders.

 “This is a race that exists in large part because of my predecessor on the Board,” said Supervisor Bill Gates, District 3. “Andy Kunasek had a vision of this event getting bigger every year and becoming a premier race event in the Valley. I’m excited to be involved, and I have no doubt this year’s race will be a huge success.”

Maricopa Trail

The Maricopa Trail is a one-of-a-kind trail that connects Maricopa County’s 10 regional parks by forming a ring around the Valley of the Sun. Currently, the trail is more than 275 miles long. It will be 310 miles long when it is complete.
