Willcox Flyer Bike Ride
presented by
Aridus Wine Company
August 30th, 2014


The 2nd Annual Willcox Flyer Bike Ride will take place on Saturday, August 30th, 2014.  The ride will begin at 7:00am in Historic Railroad Ave Park in Willcox, Arizona.  (100 S Railroad Ave)  Riders may choose between a 33 or 66 mile, out and back course.  All riders leave town on Highway 186 and make their way up a gradual climb until they reach the 33 mile turn around point on top of the iconic Dos Cabezas Mountains.  (It doesn't have to be fun to be fun!)  If continuing, riders enjoy a scenic route with rolling hills and wide open rangeland until they reach the entrance to Chiricahua National Monument.  It's a beautiful time of year in Willcox.  Temperatures are on average 10 degrees cooler than Tucson!

This year we will be again offer a special distance for kids, families and those who are just getting started.  We are offering an 8 mile fun ride that will be led by Olympian Mike Allen of Willcox! 

The 33 mile course will gain 1,129 feet of elevation while the 66 mile gains 1,965 feet. 

There will be 3 aid stations along the route stocked with water and snacks.  There will also be a sag wagon available.

This event was previously known as The Magic Circle.  This will be the second year that Roca Motion in conjunction with Willcox Chamber of Commerce, is organizing the event and decided to change the name.  Our hope is to bring excitement and enthusiasm for cycling, straight into the heart of Willcox. 

After your ride, we will all enjoy listening to "Mike P and The Mighty Joel Ford" jam in the park.  Dante's Fire will be selling breakfast burritos starting at 5:30am and will have the grill going with a delicious menu when you get back from your ride!  There will be many local vendors in the park also selling produce, bacon, nuts, custom jerseys, handmade soaps, popcorn and more.  Aridus, our title sponsor will also have a tent set up in the park!   We invite you to stick around and participate in our post ride festivies that will take place in Railroad Ave Park.  Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the event! 

All racers will receive a bag of swag and a sweet race t-shirt!  All finishers will also receive a custom water bottle, made possible by LifeNet EMT service.  Plus, you'll be helping students in Willcox, just for riding your bike.  All proceeds from this ride will be donated to "Small Town ~ Big Dreams" a 501 (c)(3).
