Around the Bend 400k
From Casa Grande the route travels in a clockwise direction circling much of the Salt/Gila River Valley, including traveling along most of the length of the Valley of the Sun. This is done on roads that generally only skirt the southern reaches of the cities of the Valley, which together comprise the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States. Much of the first half of the route is across desert and reservation land. The second half is primarily farm land. The roads were chosen to minimize traffic and stop lights and many are formerly key roads that have been superseded by Interstate and highways, leaving them more enjoyable for cyclists.

Need a break from your basement rollers or your snow blower? Come join us for a nice ride through the desert southwest. If you thought Florida was flat, wait until you ride this one!

Registration, maps, and more information may be found here.
