    Nice!

    Sigh....someday I hope to get out to Utah & Arizona! Unfortunately I'm in that age group now that our parents need the kind of care that our kids needed when they were young! But I'm not far off retirement (for the 2nd time-lol) so keeping my fingers crossed for the future!

    Looks awesome! Great pictures!

    I did some riding around Scottsdale about 10 years ago and would love to return to the area.

    Thanks for sharing.

    a few of us did yup. did the Highline trail then the next day over to the Hangover trail. Both trails are fantastic.
    we stayed at the red agave, which is right behind the bike and bean. the trailhead starts right at the resort's property to get to the highline, and a lot of the trails around bell rock, cathedral rock etc.

    red agave is mint, I went in February and Carlos is a friend so we share trip beta all the time. You may have seen some of the vids he flipped around after our trip. I love the fact yuo can ride out of the door literally onto a huge network of trails we only drove once in 8 days to ride Munds wagon and stuff in that area.

    post more pics !!

    As Requested, some more pictures....

    A Look at what is coming up on the trail... and a cool rock...


    Some snow... just like canada on our way to the grand canyon.


    Our flying Frenchman


    I kinda felt bad for the baggage handlers... oh well


    A morning view from the Red agave


    a short hike into the canyon we got to this lookout.


    I lost....


    Used my girlfriends crank brother tool, well to fix my bike....


    my poor heckler took a beating over the 10 days we were down there... but a few parts later, the old girl is ready for more abuse... i hope to go through the videos a bit more and edit them down to post them on youtube or something.... some killer videos...

    lol. Crash&bern was posting trail-side fixes in another thread. It was starting to look like none of your bikes would survive the trip!

    we tried to make it as affordable as possible for everyone.
    Up in Flagstaff we all stayed at a Hostel.
    i believe that ended up costing about $25 per night per person.
    this allowed us to be able to afford the Red Agave in Sedona.
    the hostel turned out to be alright, it was old but clean.
    And alot of us used air miles for the flight.

    a couple of boxes were rented but the majority of us bought them as we are planning many more trips either as groups or individually.
    so they should pay themselves off quickly.
    temps in flagstaff were low 20's and at night around freezing
    sedona was upper 20's and upper teens at night.
    phoenix (were we only spent one night) was mid 30's and mid 20's
    a couple of years ago we rented a couple of boxes for our moab trip.
    the bags are lighter allowing you to pack more in the bag.

    I would do the same thing,no problem. It's all about the biking and having fun with like minded individuals.
