This route starts at the intersection of 22nd St. and Kolb Rd. at McDonald's on the SW corner.

The route "tacks" East and South until connecting with Mary Ann Cleveland Way to Vail; head South on Colossal Cave Rd to "Old" E. Benson Hwy which is also the I-10 Frontage road on the East side of I-10. E. Benson Hwy becomes Marsh Station Rd. Marsh Station Rd. dead ends at exit 291 on I-10. Merge onto Eastbound I-10 shoulder to Exit 302 for AZ 90 South toward Ft. Huachuca and Sierra Vista. Continue South on AZ Rt 90 to AZ Rt 82. Head West on AZ Rt 82 to Sonoita; head south on AZ Rt 83 to Old Sonoita Hwy. Follow Old Sonoita Hwy to Colossal Cave Rd and backtrack to the Finish at 22nd St./Kolb Rd.

You will ride through beautiful rollers through the Sonoran desert, a 10 mile stretch on I-10, lush grasslands, and more fun rollers and a couple of Border Patrol check points. Always a good idea to have your government issued ID with you.
