    Sedona Bound Next Week- Last Minute Preparations?

    Hi All!

    I cannot wait to be in Sedona this time next week. Because you were all so helpful pointing out the need/recommendation for a Stan's Conversion (which was very easy- since I already had the rims), I was wondering if there are any other things that you all would recommend for a guy from Jersey.

    I have been on several guided tours before so I have the majority of stuff covered but was wondering if there are any "Sedona/Arizona" items that would just make the trip more enjoyable.

    Just figured I would ask since I have a few days before I leave.

    Thanks!
    I guarantee I will never, ever be accused of bringing sexy back...

    Even though you are tubless now, always carry a spare tube. Hydration is important as well.

    Drink at least a gallon of water a day if inactive and much more if riding. Becoming dehydrated here is very easy and happens fast. It could even ruin a trip.

    Carry an extra tube, one with slime is even better. Drink plenty of water, even if you're not thirsty. When you think you had enough, drink more. Tweezers and duct tape are great for the unforeseen collisions with various cacti. Armor is nice for the plant life that wants to cut any exposed skin, but also is nice for said collision with a cactus or other falling/crashing endeavors.
    The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is you’ll crash.
