This is a great ride in north Mesa. A section of Bush Hwy parallels the salt river for some scenic views. This bike ride has a little bit of everything; flats, rollers, climbing and descending. This one of the best rides in Phoenix, AZ. Potential Hazards: during the warmer months watch out for the trucks pulling boats on the way to Saguaro Lake.
Start at the Red Mountain Park which is on Brown east of Power Rd.
From the Red Mountain Park head west on Brown. Turn right on Power Rd heading north. Power turns into Bush Hwy. Take Bush Hwy until you come to Beeline Hwy 87. Once you get to Beeline turn around heading back on Bush Hwy and ride until you get to Usery Pass. Turn left on Usery Pass and climb up the pass. Once you come to the top of Usery Pass you will descend for a couple of miles. Usery Pass turns into Ellsworth Rd. From Ellsworth Rd turn right on Brown Rd and head back to your car at the Red Mountain Park.
There a plenty of places to eat along Power Rd.
There are some rest stop areas along Bush Hwy as you parallel the salt river.
