    Where would you go?

    I need help and I am asking the pro's, you all...

    I want the best bang for the buck.
    What would you do?

    1. You have three days for riding and you want a really great diverse set of rides.
    2. You can go out of town, but can't leave the state.
    3. You want to go where it will be comfortable and cool.
    4. You want reasonable lodging.
    5. You want places to go eat.
    6. Where do you go?

    Thank you all for you help.

    Sedona's getting warm...early morning/late afternoon rides are okay though. Flag definitely would be good, lodging is a little more reasonable, as are good restaurants.
    The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is you’ll crash.

    Your choice is simple, mostly because there's only one (and it's a good one): Flagstaff.

    If you aren't in a hurry wait until monsoon season and come to flagstaff. Killer tacky dirt bro. The freshest freshies of the pow pow gnar.

    If the forest is open (when monsoon season hits) you can hit up a ride in Williams if you get bored with Flag. Id do one ride on the Mt Elden side, one on the Snowbowl side (azt) and then maybe one kinda in-between or the Williams thing. Sedona is off limits for me for the warm season. The bare rock reflects sun energy well and can make it feel 10 degrees hotter, or similar to Phoenix. Careful with the monsoon tho, the wx can cause T-storms by 10am. The usual schedule is much later in the day, but sometimes it gets thrown out of whack. On the other hand, often the storms will clear out in the afternoon if they start earlier.

    KO, the gods have decided and with the help of MR-RANGER, kudos for your maps. My son and I are heading for the cool country of Flag.

    Appears to be many places to ride.

    What's everyone favorite?

    Gonna do a day in Sedona too!
