    Good job! OT: Actual Sedona stoke.

    Hello mtbr viewers I hope this message finds you well. I actually got on my bike for the first time in a few weeks and attempted to "shred the red" yesterday. Its been a bad semester for biking for me. Between taking classes, teaching classes, and doing research I didn't have much time to ride. On top of that I also had a shoulder dislocation a month ago and in October I woke up strapped to a backboard being hiked off of submarine rock with a gnarly concussion. I've been off my game.

    Needless to say it felt super good to head down to Sedona and ride some of my favorite lines. The first stop on every Sedona ride is to fill up the camelsack with the ever flowing spring water. This water flows through several vortexes before it reaches the surface and drinking it during your ride makes you 27% more awesome. Even though the broken arrow area is clogged with hikers and pink jeep tours there are also plenty of hidden little drops and steeps all over that zone. My lungs were burning and my legs gave up on some pretty easy climbs but it was still rad. I spent some time on subrock which has some gnarly steeps and fun drops. The top of the rock is a natural pump-track filled with doubles that you can link up. I did 4 laps on sick-boy which I think is the most fun you can have in Sedona even if it is only 2 minutes long. I even managed to get the courage up to ride the flying Cherokee line. I wrapped it up with a run down pigs tail. Hopefully I can ride 4 times a week until next semester takes my bike time away from me.

    Now I'm off to go ride some western Sedona stuff with the lady. Winter breaks are rad! Go ride Sedona and keep your eyes open for hidden lines!

    Dang, Namdor down! Glad to hear you're healing up. Save some body hits for the May river trip.

    Thanks for the post. It was an awesome day. We hit Christmas and New Years Wash today. It's not a Sick-Boy ride, but if you like very technical wash riding it is world class. That droppy stuff scares me and you young guys heal quicker than I can, so I am sticking close to the ground.

    Let me know when the next Egg Nog party is.

    I'm training early for my next namdor experience by crashing headlong through whatever brush gets in my way! I can't wait till May, being a namdor might be my true calling.

    Sounds like a good time. The lady and I rode slim-shady to day and it was a little slick but rad as always. I'm not going to throw a NOG party but we should go for a ride sometimes. There is a line called the flying Cherokee that you should ride.

    More Sedona stoke: My much better half can ride a bike!

    The Silverback Gorilla is down for the count with pending shoulder surgery following a hotly contested hockey game with Bigfoot Barbecue. You may have to lead the pack

    That's a lot of responsibility, I don't know if I can handle all of that arrow weed on my own!

    That is great and all but what have YOU done for the Sedona trail system and the 82.9 percent of users out and about in the Red Rock District?

    Ha, I've got two kids. Besides I only compete against Strava. But, I could make an exception for you. Wanna meet at Turkey Mountain in Tulsa, OK? That can't be too far from Austin. We'll have a bike off on the Ho Mi Ching trail or whatever it is with the antiquated wooden features. First one to hurt themselves wins.

    I posted a bunch of images from my last two trips to Sedona in the Passion forum.

    You may recognize some familiar faces to the Arizona forum and Sedona scene.

    Oh, you didn't get the memo; I no longer live in Austin. Anyway, you and I both already know driving up there would just be a waste of gas.

    No my wife took the top out of the van and put it in the clothes hamper then it was washed and when I went to put the clean wash away I noticed it wasn't mine. I appreciate you asking.

    RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT. I figured you were just trying to increase your demographics on your tours by offering some kind of swingers retreat/camp.
