    Los Burros - the video

    An angry mob with torches, pitch forks, rakes, baseball bats and the like, gathered in my
    front yard demanding to know why, as an Arizonan, I was not publishing more videos of
    trails in AZ.

    With sweaty palms I offer up:

    Awesome. I am entering the Show Low Bluff Tour race and having never been up there wondered what the trail is like. I am still pondering 15 vs. 35 mile loop. I could 35 miles here in the valley, but at 8000 ft elevation I wonder if I can last.

    To me 35 up there is easier than phx because it is so much smoother. Not half as many rocks beating the heck out of you the hole ride. There are rest stops with food and water if you need to take a break.

    Ya, the 35 up there is a lot less battering to the body and bike than 10 miles in the Valley. Just get up there 2 days early if you can to acclimate to the altitude. There is nothing techy on LB or many trails up there compared to around here.

    That being said, I'd probably have a heart attack trying to ride 35 miles up there

    Uhhh if my memory serves me correctly, Blue Ridge and Ice Caves give you a nice beating thanks to some rocks. Definitely not valley riding for sure but the 35 will give you a nice beat down! (at least for me it did)

    That being said... totally worth going! Can't wait to try it again this year.

    I won't even have time to make the "mandatory meeting" on friday night. I would love to do the offered pre-ride this weekend but I cannot. I will be in Sedona for a meeting for a weekend. I will try to get some riding up there for higher elevation practice, of course there are no 35 mile, non-rocky trail in AZ - unless I ride the bell path up and down like 10 times.
