Mosaic Cycles Flagstaff Week 2024! June 3-7.


Blueprint - Mosaic Artist Series

Mosaic Flagstaff Week. June 3-7 2024.


They say if "If you know you know" and chances are, if you're reading this blog, then you definitely know. That's right, it's the week you've been waiting for. The best week of the year, hands down. Mosaic Flagstaff Week is here!  Monday-Friday, June 3rd through June 7th.


This year we're rolling at 7am sharp from Full Cycle, (2355 30th St), returning back to The Tune Up Cafe @ Full Cycle for coffee afterwards. Some days will be casual & social, some won't... Ride fast, ride slow, ride your road bike, your gravel bike, your e-bike, ride however you want, just come and ride with us! Everybody is welcome and encouraged to bring a friend. A few key details are below!

This year brings a special treat for those who ride all five days: As usual whoever is the fastest male and female rider on Friday brings home the victory. Anyone who rides everyday will receive a limited edition Flagstaff Week Poster & Flagstaff Mailboxes T-Shirt.

Flag Week Details:

  • Come early to sign a waiver for the week (you can't ride without it) and get your punchcard to keep track of the week (the punchcard is back!)

  • Grab a load of complimentary nutrition from our friends at GU.

  • Meet at Full Cycle @ 6:45, rolling through town via W. Pearl St. before turning up 6th street to access Flagstaff Road. If you're late, ride up 6th St. and catch up.

  • Post ride hang at the The Tune Up Cafe @ Full Cycle each morning for coffee and conversation.

  • Social paced ascent on Monday and Tuesday mornings - great days to join us if you're in for a social, low-key ride.

  • Spirited ascent Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday - great days to come to get that PR you've been working towards; good-hearted competition encouraged

  • Plan to ride two-by only if you have a shoulder. We strongly encourage riding single file once we pass Gregory Canyon- let's not piss anyone off. If our group is extraordinarily big, we will role in waves- safety first.

  • The group will naturally split up on the climb- we'll wait at the top for everyone and start the descent together (descend responsibly and conservatively- safety first)

  • You can come for as few or as many days as you want

  • Friday is a great day to get a little funky and wear something offbeat, vintage, skinsuit-y, or just weird. There might be a prize for this too...

  • Donuts and coffee after Friday's ride, again, at The Tune Up Cafe @ Full Cycle.

  • Don't overthink it, come ride with us

A Note on Safety, the rules!

This is an unofficial community event. The goal is to challenge ourselves and each other to do something awesome. That said, it isn't a race. Don't be a dick.

1. When you get to the top, get off the road. Don't stand near the road, on the line, or on the road in front of the mailboxes. Don't collect on the road. Don't stand in the driveways. No road-standing. If you see someone standing on the road or near the road, tell them to get off the damn road.

2. Do not tailgate cars on the descent. Don't pass cars on the descent.

3. DO NOT TAILGATE CARS ON THE DESCENT. DON'T PASS CARS ON THE DESCENT.

4. No crossing the yellow center line for any reason.

5. No riding more than two-by on a shoulder, or one-by on your climb when there is no shoulder.

6. If a car is coming up on the group, communicate and get over immediately.

7. Watch for deer!! Do not hit them. It's not fun.

Even if you can't make the "official" 7am roll out each day, we hope you choose to participate in #mosaicflagstaffweek whenever it fits into your schedule.


Feel free to forward this email along to others in our community. And keep in mind that this is still a grassroots, unofficial ride. As Mosaic Flagstaff Week has grown, we are fully aware that its future hinges on all of us riding with class. Do your part: keep it safe and rad and even just slightly underground so we can #flagstaffweek for many more years to come.
