Around the Bend 400k

The Around the Bend brevet route can be described as City meets Desert meets Farm meets Reservation in a repeating cycle. The route starts and finishes in Sun Lakes and travels in a counter-clockwise direction.

The route travels along most of the length of the Valley of the Sun. This is 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 State. Much of the first half of the route is across desert and reservation land. The second half is primarily city and 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 The roads were chosen to minimize traffic and stop lights, and many are formerly key roads that have been superseded by Interstate and highways, leaving them for cyclists to enjoy.

Services are located at regular intervals along the route. Towns and cities visited: Casa Grande, Sacaton, Casa Blanca, Maricopa, Gila Bend, Arlingon, Buckeye, Estrella, Phoenix, Laveen, Komatke, Sun Lakes, Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek and Coolidge

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!
