    What riding to do, help me decide.

    September 21st and 22nd my family is going away so I have the weekend free. I really want to ride, so should I

    A) Goto Sedona or Flag and ride each day.
    B) Go bikepacking. This would need to be sort of mellow unless I was with others. Being a dad of 3 with a wife I don't want to take a nasty spill and not have any help. This getting all responsible kinda of sucks ass.
    C) Vegas and blow my retirement on blow and hookers, hmmm that is interbike. I could go up Thursday night and do the show on Friday. Naw I think I would rather ride.

    What should I do?

    No brainer, blow and hookers.

    Or, ride trails like Hi Line, Slim Shady, Hangover, and the Arie trail in Sedona. Trails like Sunset and the Arizona trail in Flag.

    Bet it all on black. Duh.

    Or come to Flag or Sedona. Flag would be cooler, but I learned that this is the wettest summer since 1919, so bring the rain gear.

    Weather trend in Flag is drying out. South side of Flagstaff Loop was great today. Watch the forecast and select the temps you like. Flag is a lot cooler than Sedona.

    I need to do 20 miler that weekend - prepping for the White Mountains. Slowish and steady, PM me if you come to Flag and want to do a long ride.

    Go bikepacking......learn to deal with your fear.....our ancestors did and they came out just fine....go farther than you dare possible and surprise yourself.....you'll birth a new you inside your mind if you do it enough.

    More than likely I will drive. I will check flights last minute and see if they have any good deals. Mike, I guess you dont want to go out for some drinks Friday night! Have you downloaded the interbike app?
