Route from Surprise to Buckeye, Arizona?
Anyone have a good route from west Phoenix (Surprise, Sun City) south toward Buckeye to eventually catch old US 80 near Gila Bend?
Firstly I have no idea as I've never cycled in this area:
Shows the area - with the motor vehicle route shown.
I wonder what Sun Valley Parkway is like? Looks like its divided, with wide shoulders. A bit more out of the way, but few intersections.
Otherwise perhaps some of those 'undeveloped arterials' - farm roads 178th ave - west of 303?
What are you considering?
I definitely, positively recommend Sun Valley Parkway! I won't ride those farm-road-highways except for weekend mornings - it's a zoo out there
