Vulture Mine 300k
This is a "figure 8" route which stays predominantly in the far west valley. You'll start by making your way across Phoenix on your way to the first control. Once you leave this control, you will be heading out into the wide open spaces of Arizona. There will be very little to slow you down for about the next 130 miles! There will be no climbs to worry about. You will ride through a couple areas where you will find civilization, but it will mostly be you, your bicycle, and the desert.

Between miles 65-150, you will probably wonder why the roads were even built. They seem to be roads to nowhere. This segment will be on the namesake Vulture Mine Road. This is a hidden treasure. It is nearly deserted most of the time and will offer some nice views of the desert and some colorful formations near the Vulture Mine.

Come join us, won't you?
