    Flagstaff to Sedona and back up to Flagstaff

    I want to ride from Flagstaff down to Sedona and camp out in Sedona. Then ride back up to Flagstaff to my truck. Is this crazy or is it do able. I realize it will be up hill all the way back to flagstaff but I am not in a hurry so i would take my time. I just want to know if anyone has done this? Oh ya I will have a 25lb pack on my back HAHAHAHAHAHAH! I have rode 50 miles before with my pack. just not sure about riding back up to Flagstaff. If not I will; just ride around the mountians form snowbowl to Lockett meadow and camp. what ya think?

    1+ for bikepacking.net. if you have a GPS you can get lots of tracks on the routes page.

    Lots of bikepacking options out of Flagstaff down to Sedona or stay up in the woods and go south past Morman Lake all the way to the Rim. There is also a good loop down by the Rim the Cabin Loop is only 30 miles and has several creeks. I am planning a 2 day coming up with 2 loops for about 50 miles.

    Singin' I love hike a bike!!!
