Prickly Pedal


The Prickly Pedal on the Maricopa Trail is a mountain bike race like no other. Located in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, the Prickly Pedal Mountain Bike Race winds through the northern section of the Maricopa Trail, the Valley’s emerald ring—a seamless connection of beautiful desert and challenging terrain with scenic views and near-perfect riding conditions.

All proceeds from the Prickly Pedal Mountain Bike Race go to support the Maricopa Trail and Park Foundation.? To learn more, visit
