Scorpion 600k

Join us for the 2nd running of this 600k route. It has been slightly modified this year so that the turnaround is in the Prescott "Square." This is a great place to have lunch at one of the many restaurants, grab a sandwich and hang out under the trees for a few minutes before you return back to Phoenix.

The ride starts in North Phoenix and heads into the Arizona high country for the first 400k segment. You will return to the start/finish (hotel) where you can get some sleep or restock and head out for the remaining 200k. The final 200k are similar to our Saguaro 200k brevet and travel to the east valley for some gentle climbing along Saguaro Lake and Usery Mountain.

The topology of this route should favor our early summer temperatures with a cool morning start in Phoenix then staying mostly at higher elevations during the warmer parts of the day. You'll return to Phoenix just in time for temps to cool again at night.

The route's name comes from its shape on a map. Just like the real thing, the route will have a sting in its tail as riders climb Yarnell Hill and Whitespar Mountain before dropping into the Old West town of Prescott. You will get to descend both on your return to Phoenix! 

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