hi all. coming from so cal in late november just before thanksgiving and looking to do a self-supported mid-week century ride in the scottsdale area.
areas that looks the most intriguing are the hwy 87/88 + hwy 60 and hwy 188 areas in the mountains. have never been to/ridden in the region.
looking to do the most scenic century possible-the best the nearby area has to offer. not really worried about the elevation gain as long as it's < 13,000 ft.
also curious about the road condition of the highways previously mentioned and if they are relatively safe to ride.
don't necessarily need a shoulder but wonder if there are some "trouble" areas.
and yes...i saw this recent thread but it didn't answer the longer ride question i have-
any and all input from the regulars in the area would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance!
