Nice out and back ride through South Mountain park.  The ride down San Juan is quiet and fun, heading out into the desert.  A nice rolling hill get you warmed up for the climb to the TV towers on South Mountain.  This ride is entirely in the park and the only services are at the main gate.  Bring food and water.
