In Phoenix for work, temperature was 78-82, sun was shining and Pittsburgh was still below freezing. I rented a Trek Superfly 9 FS from Arizona Outback Adventures and these loops hit the spot for me at 10am on a Saturday morning.
There weren't too many riders, and I could quickly knock the rust of my skills riding the easier loop, then the advanced loop and finally the longer loop. These all went from one to another without stopping and this overall trail was fantastic. When I'm back in Phoenix, I am likely to check out some other areas, but knowing that I can just crank the pedals faster and faster may make me want to just hit this spot again.
Not a lot of climbing, not that technical...if you want both just come to Pittsburgh. After riding multiple laps, I would have stayed there all day if not for my legs turning to jello!
