    Flagstaff Ride?

    Hello, I've been in Flagstaff about two weeks and have hit the Soldiers Loop to Flagstaff Loop to Rogers Lake Connector to Gold Digger Loop and back about 6-7 times now (~23-24 miles), all solo (bad luck getting here right when all the NF is closed, hence the repeats here). I've gone down to Sedona a few times, but it's so damned hot that I've just stuck around this area. Usually in other places I get lucky and always run into someone at a trailhead to ride with but so far this trip I've been skunked so I thought I would reach out on here to see if anyone was around/interested in a ride. Would be cool to be able to ride something with someone local if anyone has the time. I will be in town until this Saturday so let me know!

    Planning to ride in Sedona on Saturday morning before it gets too warm.

    There's a nice spot to chill by Oak Creek mid-ride if you plan your route right..

    If you want something different you can check out the Campbell Mesa loops. Nothing special but change of scenery from the Fort Tuthill loops. If Iím able to ride Friday (pulled a calf muscle this morning like never before) Iíll ping you.

    i know this sounds crazy... but try starting your ride in Sedona at 6PM and ride till 830PM... For me its not the temperature that affects me, its sun exposure and sun angle that affects me more...

    I keep telling my buddies this but all they care about is the number on the thermostat.

    105 at 7p is nothing like 105 at 1p.
