Been wanting to ride this route for awhile now and finally got out there today and did it. Was an awesome ride and the views from Spur Cross Trail to the Maricopa Trail were outstanding.
I did realize though that something does need to change. Till I hit the Go John Trail, I only walked twice on my single speed (one was the climb up to the spur cross trail and the other was cave creek wash [sand]). The last 1/4 or so of that trail all heck broke loose and I had to walk a few more times. Right now I am running 33/18 SS so I might change the cog to a 20 but there were some geared riders out there smoking me, especially once in cave creek recreational area. Not sure if I need a geared bike, a lighter bike or a different cog or 2 of the 3.
Either way I thought that ride was awesome but its too bad that it took me just over 3 hours even though I went about a half mile or so in the wrong direction and took some breaks at some scenic shots. Will see if I can get some pics posted.
Got one pic posted, not sure why it wont let me post the others
