    AZT BOX CANYON SHUTTLE RIDE SUNDAY Feb 19th

    SHUTTLE RIDE THIS WEEKEND!
    **DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, THIS SHUTTLE WILL TAKE PLACE THE THIRD SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH**
    This epic ride on the Arizona Trail starts at Box Canyon and finishes at the Gabe Zimmerman Trailhead. Its 28 miles of mostly descending, flowy goodness. Not super technical, some sustained climbs, and amazing views of the Southern Arizona Grasslands finishing in the classic Desert Landscape of Tucson.
    Plan on a 4+ hour ride at a moderate pace. Bring your water, food, tools, and supplies and let Home Grown make the logistics easy!
    DETAILS:
    Meet at Gabe Zimmerman Trailhead at 8am sharp. Home Grown will load you and your bike in the HG van and drop you off at the start of the ride at Box Canyon.
    THIS IS A SELF-SUPPORTED RIDE! No guide will be present.
    COST IS $25 PER PERSON. LIMITED TO 14 RIDERS MAX, MINIMUM OF 6 REQUIRED. PLEASE REGISTER BELOW:

    I'm also doing 24hop that weekend so looks like i'll have to do the shuttle in March if they are still doing it that month.

    Where can I get a better map of the ride and the elevation profile? The one on your site is tiny and doesn't expand. Can't find it on Trailforks either, unless its under a different name.

    Don't let that elevation profile fool you. There's a lot of up and down in the Las Colinas passage.
    Shit happens...

    Also, on the trailforks profile this particular shuttle ride ends at the low point in elevation just before mile 30, that's the Gabe Zimmerman TH. You won't be doing the last two climbs.

    It's a fantastic ride, there are some bits of HAB early on, but don't let that deter you!!
