      I was wondering if there is a map of this ride posted anywhere on the internet. I was out of town but wanted to ride the course on my own.

      I’m not sure if there are any maps on the internet, but the ride is pretty clearly marked on the pavement still with white arrows. It leaves from Kiwanis Park, ducks over to College Ave, travels up College to the southern edge of the ASU campus, turns left through the Maple-Ash neighborhood, then goes north to Fifth, then circles back through campus and down College to the Kiwanis park. The loop should be pretty bike-friendly with the sole exception of crossing over University at one point.

      If I have time, I’ll try to re-create the map and provide a link.

      KD found the official map of the TdT route in her email. You can now grab it here:
