The great pleasure derived from riding motorcycles is the most common thread shared by BMMC members. The more we ride the more comfortable we feel and the more we enjoy it. Getting out on the road and seeing this wonderful part of the world on two wheels is truly a feeling of freedom.
To make it easier and more fun to just get-up-and-go, BMMC has put together a package of ride suggestions for you. All you have to do is pack, gas, and go. The planning is already done.
The maps and ride descriptions show eight rides from the Phoenix area: There are four rides of approximately 500 miles each and four rides of approximately 1000 miles each. Each ride is perfect for a nice, easy, scenic, two or three-day adventure – and can be ridden anytime you desire.
Each 500/1000 Mile Ride package includes an overview map of the route, expanded maps of certain areas for clarification, a written list of turn-by-turn instructions with segment mileage and total mileage, recommended hotel/motels, plus a Garmin GPS file. It is recommended that you download and print the material, then match it to a preprinted map. Feel free, also, to modify the route to your liking.
Each route begins and ends at the Conoco Station on Hwy 87 opposite the Fort McDowell Casino (near Fountain Hills), making it easy to ride the routes in the reverse direction also. Approximately half way around the 500 mile rides, and in thirds on the 1000 mile rides, you will see a recommended overnight stay with a couple of lodging suggestions that won’t break the bank.
Of course, where you want to stay is up to you, so don’t feel obligated to choose the city or lodging suggested. Should you desire to ride any of the 500 mile routes in one day, that can be easily accomplished. It’ll require approximately eleven hours to complete it, with bio, gas, and food stops included.
So, what’s holding you back? Get some friends together and go make a few memories! From this page, you can navigate to any of the eight routes (four 500 milers & four 1000 milers). Just click on the route in which you are interested.
These are recreational rides for your enjoyment. There is no sign-up or ride validation procedure for these rides.
