You will love it. Riding here is awesome with plenty of well paved twisty mountain roads. Route 191 formerly 666 (Devils Highway) is one of the best roads I have ever ridden, makes the tail of the dragon look a 11 mile driveway. 191 is a 90 mile stretch of desolate mountain road along the New Mexico border that goes from 5,000' in Morencie, AZ to Alpine, AZ 8,000' with no traffic, police or guardrails... Summer in the valley can be like living on the sun sometimes but there are plenty of nice days with relief coming from the monsoon rains. In summer months we head out before sunrise and head for altitude of over 6,000' to ride which is easy to find. You can be in Flagstaff 7,000' in 2 hours from North Phoenix. The 8 months of non-summer are amazing. There is a reason snowbirds (mostly Mid westerners and Canadians) flock here... Also we have AZ bike week, Barrett Jackson, baseball spring training, hiking, boating, fishing, hunting. Tell all of your friends its too hot here - its our secret how nice it is ;-).
