San Tan Shredders Mountain Bike Group - San Tan
San Tan Mountain Regional Park
Join us for a Memorial Day ride through the park. Most group rides are comprised of riders from all various skill levels, ages and fitness levels, but we all share the common interest of riding mountain bikes. “No Rider Left Behind” is our policy, because we ride together in groups based upon your riding levels. This is your opportunity to be around others who are passionate about mountain biking as a sport to have fun. We offer help when needed so you can gain new skills and confidence while on the trails. Come out and enjoy the great views of the San Tan Mountain Regional Park and the quiet get away from the everyday noise. This is a great way to get some exercise, have fun and meet some awesome people. A helmet is required for safety reasons and please bring plenty of water, an extra inner tube and two sources of light.
