The Tonto Basin 100/50 is one of the most Beautifulest rides that I would have never seen. If a Friend had not insisted on me riding it. The ride takes place on the scenic round trip course in the spring of the year along I-188. It will start at the Tonto Basin Gas station and wind pass the roosevelt lake on your left and the historical Roosevelt Dam on your Right. while continuing the ride you will come upon the National Tonto Basin Monument. There are two major hills along this curvey road that will lead you to the Tonto Basin Rec Center where we will stop for Lunch. The round trip back to Tonto Basin with cascading mountains laid out before you. The freedom of the ride between Maricopa and Gila County is as breathtaking as it it challenging.
This event will includes two fully stocked SAG vehicles, Lunch, a Group Picture and many great photo ops. This event is limited to 20 riders, so register early to ensure a spot.
