    The first picture is of him riding up a "downhill" trail in Sedona. He is in the exact spot you would land if you went off of the drop to the upper right of him. The second picture is him not hitting the drop.

    Well then it's a dud.

    I want to see a picture of what happens when he's riding up that downhill run right when a downhiller comes flying off that lip.

    Wonder if they closed part of the trail for the shoot. Saves them having to wait for people to clear before they can get shots, and/or edit things out.

    Sedona is such a stressful place to ride. I hope I didnt ride the wrong way on some trail last week during the AES SBFL. I did run into our friendly self appointed ambassador during the ride who said that I must be from out of town because no one would go up the crappy trail we were about to go up. Didn't know there were so many rules on how to ride my bike.

    He was just concerned about your user experience. Not that it mattered to you but he was probably right.

    How could he be right? It is my user experience to be had and I had a great time. So I would say he was 100% wrong.

    Wow I guess everyone around here knows how I'm supposed to ride better than me. Define crappy trail? Not groomed and manicured? Yes if that crappy trail is part of the larger picture of completing the 50 mile Sedona Big Friggin Loop than Yes that is exactly the trail and the user experience I want to have.

    Exactly. So, it didn't matter to you. I'm curious, however, the name of the crappy trail you were climbing when he ran into you?

    No it doesn't matter to me. But your comment that he was right would only be true if the user experience I was seeking was the same as his. And my point is, it wasn't. Regardless you asked where I ran into him.

    Forgive me if I get this wrong because I was just following my GPS the entire time and really never paid attention to the trail names. Looking at a trail map online and comparing to the AES route my guess is it was at the intersection of Grinder and Rupp. We were heading up Rupp (aka crappy trail) to Cockscomb to Aerie and Mescal.

    Well, he was right. Rupp is a crappy trail. It's really an old jeep road. But as a connector to get to Aerie (which he helped route and build) it served the purpose. That's sort of his deal. He's genuinely concerned about your user-experience whether you wanted it or not. Or, he would not have built Aerie.

    He should be carrying some tools and have a "who, me?" look on his face.

    You are not looking for the same user experience, being from out of town, you need to get home within a reasonable time frame.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    So does everything related to Sedona have to involve arguments?

    I believe Canadianbacon was behind the one-way flow trail concept and layout and BikeDoc did much of the heavy lifting.

    The original name was Szechuan Chicken.
