    And Arizona riders go north to Canada!?
    Go figure!
    Glad you enjoyed the Arizona dirt; there is a lot more to explore!
    Our northern neighbors are always welcome in the Valley of the Sun!

    FYI for your next trip:
    It is a good idea to go tubeless out here due to the cactus needles/sharp rocks/etc. (guess you sorta found out since you had a flat)!
    Still a good idea to carry a tube or 2 in case of a damaged tire!

    Granted we have the ability to ride year round and it is very diferent riding desert than woods, but I saw miles and miles of sweet single track on a recent trip to Barrie Ontario. Real single track that seemed to never end not multi use trails and so pretty and green too. I think that is one thing that makes our hobby so great, you can rent bikes and experience all of it when you travel or just pack your rig up and take it with you.
