We are planning our cross country trip starting next month out of San Diego... we are using the Southern Tier Adventure Cycling Association maps, but are thinking of going "off-route" at El Centro, AZ and heading for Tucson. Seems to be possibly tough to get there by bike-- looks like the only road is the interstate. Anyone know anything about this? Can we bike on Rte 8 across AZ? Has anyone done this?
We are hoping to bypass Phoenix and hit Tucson instead.
