    Enjoying the Sedona and Flagstaff area

    Feeling fortunate to have been able to motor west this week. Here's just a few shots from a couple of the trails we have ridden thus far.

    Just checked temps in Sedona & Oak Creek and it looks mellow (high 80s/low 90s).
    We were there around Memorial Day weekend 3 years ago and temps were over 100 degrees every day -- people were finishing their rides and hikes by about 7 or 8 am, so I just assumed (incorrectly, it seems) that Sedona summers were not doable. The pine trees look lovely, too.

    Thanks for the pics SW..one of the places I want to ride. Maybe next year I can get the chance to go further out than Fruita - 16 hour drive just to Fruita from where I live..
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    Very nice. My mom lives in Peoria and I visit her twice a year. I always say I'm gonna rent a bike out there, but never do. Where is a good place to rent and ride in either Sedona or Flagstaff?

    Village of Oak Creek just south of Sedona has the bike shops with rentals, very close (easily rideable) to the Bell Rock trail head.

    steelhmr - We are staying in Oak Creek. Absolute Bikes has a shop here, and they have rentals. I like their laid-back aura. They gave us the *perfect* route to ride on the first day we were here. (However, we did not rent. We brought our own bikes.)

    Entouragegeek78 - Flagstaff has the classic long climbs and long descents, with some mild technical challenges to keep it interesting. And the temps are nice. However, there is a noticeable lack of signage at trail intersections, and we spent a *lot* of time stopping and trying to figure out where we were on the map. That definitely detracted from the awesome trail, I'm sorry to say. Sedona has very rocky terrain, which us Austinites are quite comfortable with. We are also used to the warmth. The trails are very well maintained, and signage is more than adequate. I must say, given the rides I have done thus far, I would recommend Sedona to a fellow visitor.
