From River Run Plaza head north through the Upper Valley, connecting to Hwy 28 and up to La Union, then take La Union Road to Alvarez to McNutt to Artcraft to the Border Crossing, returning via Airport Road and McNutt to Country Club. This is a good everyday ride because it has a lot of variety and not much traffic. The first 15 miles are pretty much of a warmup. Then there's the climb up Artcraft, which get the heart pumping. By the time you get to the overpass just after the Airport Road intersection its time to crank up the speed for the 5-mile flat stretch to the border crossing and the five miles back. From there its a downhill cruise on Airport and a short jaunt back to the starting point along McNutt. For fun, try out the new bike/pedistrian trail along NcNutt. Then cut through the University of Phoenix parking lot to avoid the stoplight at McNutt and Country Club; Make your slalom course created by the speed bumps in the parking lot.
