Saguaro Lake 100k

This is a very scenic route through Fountain Hills & East Mesa. Enjoy grand views of the Superstition Mountains, Four peaks, Red Mountain & Saguaro Lake. If you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the mob of Wild Horses who make their home in the Red Mountain wilderness. There are very few flat sections on this route, but the climbs tend to be short and evenly spaced. The Bush highway & Usery Pass section (about 45-miles), is arguably the most beautiful route in the Phoenix area.

This route has abundant climbing for an early season ride. The descents do pay you back, though.
