Fajita run to Wickenburg, AZ

After an unexpected water heater install this morning at the house, I saw a couple of lonely bikes in the garage and overcast skies above (both of which are very welcome sites in Arizona). I selected the BMW today, quick stop for fuel and on the I-10 westbound to 339th Ave. This is the back route into Wickenburg from I-10 and then north on Aguila Rd – Wickenburg Rd/Vulture Mine Rd.

I enjoy this route as usually I am the only person on the entire stretch (this would be all the way from I-10 to US 60). You may have to pass a tractor trailer occasionally due to a lone rock quarry out in the middle of nowhere. Nearing the backside (south) of Wickenburg (the final 15 mile stretch) you will get to do some mild twisties that can be a hoot after the long straightaways.

Once you approach Wickenburg Highschool, take my advice and adhere to all in town speed limits (they don't really cut any slack in town).

I highly recommend eating at El Ranchero Mexican Restaurant (683 W. Wickenburg Way, Wickenburg AZ 85390) you can't go wrong with their fajitas! Careful on the loose gravel parking lot!

If you live in the Valley, you can make a return loop out of this by taking the US 60 East back to Downtown Phoenix or to the Loop 303 or Loop 101, or US 60 to the Carefree HWY.

If you would like to make this a breakfast loop, you can eat at the Cowboy Cafe in downtown Wickenburg.

For a breakfast and lunch run, continue from Wickenburg Northwest on Hwy 93 to North Hwy 89 to Prescott, AZ (some of the best twisties in western Arizona).

Available fuel stops:
