Peter Listing Owner 175 Reviews All distances will start and end in Congress. On the 104 route, you’ll get to stretch your legs as you mostly descend to the Santa Maria River along the picturesque Joshua Tree Forest Parkway. There, you’ll find the first sag. You’ll want to tank up here because the fun, er, climbing is about to begin! For the next 16 miles you’ll roll and climb through some of Arizona’s finest scenery. There, you will start the 6 mile descent (woo hoo!) back to the Santa Maria River and your 2nd SAG. Enjoy it while it lasts since the 10 mile climb to Hillside awaits on the other side of the river! Never fear though, the Bull Shifters will be waiting for you at the top for your 3rd sag of the day. Your reward will be lunch served Bullshifter style. You’re really gonna like it! After lunch, you’ll roll past numerous ranches to your 4th sag near Kirkland Junction. Century riders will go right and head for Yarnell. There’s a pretty big climb to get to Yarnell, but your reward is the thrilling 7 mile descent of Yarnell Hill! This is what you’ve worked for all day long. After the e-ticket descent, you’ll have a couple miles of soft peddling and story telling with your riding buds as you cruise on in to the finish.
