During the week of January 9th, 2017 ACE began work on the Prickly Pedal Mountain Bike Race Trail.
The Maricopa Trail helps preserve the wilderness of the Sonoran Desert by keeping foot and bike traffic concentrated to the trail. The crew lead by Ben Richard was clearing and repairing parts of the trail which included digging drains and making sure the clearance on the trail was wide and tall enough for bikers to pass.
The bike race took place along the northern section of Maricopa Trail in the Sonoran Desert on January 21st. The proceeds of the Prickly Pedal Mountain Bike Race will go to support the Maricopa Trail and Park Foundation.
