    Made in the Shade and Highline, Sedona, AZ [vid]

    This is a short vid of Made in the Shade and Highline (also spelled Hiline on the trail signs). It's part of a spectacular loop that starts with Made In The Shade, Slim Shady, Highline, Baldwin, Templeton, Easy Breezy, and goes from there, depending on the depth of your gas tank. Plenty of "in your face" riding, with technical terrain. Short, steep ups, and downs. Tight turns. Rock squeezes. Boulder crawling. Slick rock. "Full on" gas and braking and a tight rope act of balance and control. All of this, with fantastic eye-candy views to distract you.

    In a word, AWESOME!

    Very nice!

    Great video and music. Looks like a professionally done commercial for Sedona biking.

    GREAT RIDERS! Lots of skill needed for that big loop you two traveled. 4 of us rode there last month right out of Oak Creek. Exact same loop. Amazing ride! You both hit that steep downhill right after the slickrock section and I'm curious is you made the whole decent into the dry creek-bed? We all had to hike-a-bike a that one after the start down! One of us left some skin in the dirt after the chute started. Thanks for the video. Best place on EARTH to ride. Bell to Llama is my fav.

    Thanks!

    Yes, the riders were me and my wife, Tracey.

    I ride the whole thing. But I've been trail riding since 1972 and mtb'ing since '90. And I did a boat load of BMX back before I hit 30.

    She's been mtb'ing since '89 or '90 as well.

    (I got lucky!)

    I rode made in the shade a couple of years ago on a stumpjumper rented from OTE sports and I gotta say that has to be my favorite trail in Sedona. Sweet Vid!

    I live in Prescott. Have ridden that loop once. Your video makes me want to get over there, A LOT more often. Wow, I forgot how beautiful it is over there. Inspiring video. As noted above, looks like an ad for biking in Sedona.
