This route circles through the flat valley irrigated by the Gila River. The two Gila River crossings on the route are normally dry, as the Gila has been diverted into a canal just East of our route near Florence. On our route on the Florence-Kelvin Highway, we cross two canals that carry Colorado River and Gila River water side by side!

This route uses many of the roads south of the East Valley that cyclists often ride. On this ride, we will pass through Queen Creek, Gilbert, Chandler, Sacaton, Casa Grande, Eloy, 11 Mile Corner, Coolidge and Florence.
