Phoenix Sonoran Preserve (Voyageur Content)

Took a little day trip from Downtown out to the preserve yesterday. 54 miles in total. Awhile back Saguaro posted photos of his awesome Cresta out here and since then it has been on my list of rides to do. Last four photos are not in the preserve but on the way home.

Bikes: too many sparkly Italians, some sweet Americans and a couple interesting Japanese

You do a great job with your pics. Are those 700X35's?

Thank you. These are 32s but I have fit 35s without issue. Itís a little closer in the back than the front but it works. Donít have any decent pics on hand to show clearance but these were 35s:

Nice colors in that pic. I didn't even intend to take that route on the way home but kinda fell into it. That section was pretty though so I'm glad I did. On the way there I took 12th st to Cave Creek rd.

That green Voyageur is such a beautiful bike!
In my eyes it's the most desirable of all the Schwinn Voyageurs.
I have an 84/85 Voyageur SP in the dark ink blue that I would say runs a close second.
Unfortunately, the paint & decals are kind of rough. It should really be repainted & redecaled.
I think it's the most comfortable bike that I have, even though it's one size too big for me.

Thank you! And agreed, it's extremely comfortable. I love the blue 85's as well and actually think they look particularly good beat up with the chrome showing underneath! Fits the vibe for this kind of bike imo!
