    A few inmates have asked me for this file. From Phx, it starts on Cave Creek Rd. and heads out through 7 Springs through some nice areas headed North. All big bike friendly so long as you go out Bloody Basin to I17.

    If you take the GWT N. from Bloody Basin, make sure it hasn't rained recently and you may have a couple water crossings and rocky roads to deal with.

    THANKS FOR THIS FILE QUACK!

    I couldn't find your original post on this so I thought I would ask here- how long did it take you to run this?

    Thanks,

    BH

    A couple hours I think? I'll pay more attention to it next time. I'm hoping to do this run in another week or two.

    Hey thanks for that! My 950 is in Cave Creek right now waiting for me to ride her home late May. I plotted that route with my Delorme maps. I have an old GPS, but I don't think its maps will recognize Seven Springs Rd. It changes names a few times on my maps, until it gets to Bloody Basin Rd.

    Is the route hard to follow without GPS?

    I worked up a ride from Carefree to Prescott and this looks just like the first half, so thanks for confirming. Wasn't sure if suitable for the Africa Twin or if the CRF would be needed. Still not sure of the second half, thru Crown King. Need to go explore, when it gets cooler!

    I talked with Countdown last week, he is planning on adding GPS files on his website DualSportWest.com because he says GPSfiledepot will be down for awhile.

    He doesn't have it up yet - I just looked - but I'll get some stuff ready for him and then give him a call.

    He wants me to add my Northern Route and my Southern Route over there - the original reason I created them was to connect the northern ends of the PCQ and the CDR, and the same with the southern ends. Then I just kept on expanding them....

    Southern Route now goes from Imperial Beach CA to Tybee Island GA.
    Northern Route now goes from Anacortez WA to central PA, but I will be expanding it soon to the Atlantic Ocean - either southern Maine, or Long Island Sound.
