Connecting ACA Routes / New Mexico/Arizona info.?
« on: April 16, 2007, 07:06:16 am »
I worked at a bicycle shop in Apache Junction, AZ at the end of Hyw 60 before entering Phoenix from the east.  Hyw 60 between Mesa and Safford is up and down hills.  From Globe to Superior is really rough, no shoulders, rumble strips and the "Tunnel from Hell".  It is traversed by many bicyclist yearly.
Word of advise, get your tires flat proofed (heavy tubes, liners and slime) NM and AZ are full of very nasty plant parts that love to deflate bicycle tires.  Some riders have reported as many as 12 flats a day.

Routes / Tuscon, AZ to Grand Canyon May or June?
« on: April 16, 2007, 08:05:25 am »
Last year the Tucson bicycle club held a ride from the Grand Canyon to Tuscon.  Route left the Grand Canyon South Rim on Az-84 to US-89 south to Flagstaff.  Alt US-89 out of Flagstaff (south) to Sedona, then Az-179 to Az-260 at Camp Verde.  Followed Az-260 across to Show Low then US-60 to Globe, then AZ-77 to Tucson.  This route is all mountains.  Can shave some time by getting off this Route at Payson and taking Az-188 to Globe.  Note avgerage elevation is 6,000 feet.
