The advice included here applies to all forms of road cycling, but it may be overkill for the person who rides only an occasional trip the library or grocery store and be insufficient for those planning to ride self-contained tours or participate in competitive bike racing. While you could start there, a better beginning point is to look at what bicycle you may already have on hand or can borrow or rent.

Yes there are 106 routes organized into 10 regions, and some good pictures. BUT ... the directions to the starting points of the routes are often inadequate and the maps are confusing and incomplete. If you are able to do your own additional research, this can be a useful guide, but it's disappointing as it is. Althought the route descriptions include a "degree of difficulty", they don't even say if they are paved or dirt. And many include dirt segments that would be unsuitable for a road bike. Too bad, with a little more work, this could be an excellent resource. As it is, you have to do a lot of additonal research on your own.
I had read reviews about the book that some of the maps were too vague for use. I found that to be true for my first ride. The instructions for the start point were terribly inaccurate and it took us quite a bit of time to find the start point on our own.
Decent guide book, but route descriptions can be a bit confusing
Lots of routes....
A must have for any Cyclist living in the State of Arizona. If you are from out-of-state and are planning to spend some time cycling in Arizona (and I highly recommend it), buy this book - you will be glad you did :) The info in the book is very accurate and informed me about many routes that I was not aware of (even after living in Arizona for 20 years).
Intended to use it on a cycling trip around Arizona but it was cancelled due to ride leader heath problems. It is still sitting on my shelf so maybe I'll get to use it sometime in the future.
