    Parking at bottom of Schnebly Hill?

    Some friends and I are riding from Flag to Sedona this Saturday and we will be parking the shuttle cars at the bottom of Schnebly hill and I have heard that it has changed in the last six years that I was last there. Is there still a place to park the cars? Or can anybody tell me about a place to park that is close to the bottom?

    Thanks, Steve Frew.

    Just past the Schnebly Hill Road turnoff on the right you'll see an outdoor shopping area on the left just past the Oak Creek Bridge. Park there. It's called the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village and it has a large public parking lot. (Late in the day the lot will be packed, but early in the morning you should have no problems.)

    Following is a link to a map and directions:

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the advice.

    We did the ride six or seven years ago and it rained almost the whole way and was a huge mud bog and took us almost eight hours to finish. Two of us broke their rear derailers and had to finish on single speeds.

    It looks to be alot drier this time so it should be a much better ride. I'll post some pics later.

    Sadden?

    Its a 45 mile trip one way from Flag to Sedona. Are you man enough to do a round trip of 90 miles? I'm not young enough to do that again.

    Alright, sorry

    I sounded too critical. It's just my anti-shuttler personna kicking in. I have ridden up Schnebly Hill Road. It is not that terrible to ride back to Flag that way, especially if you slept in Sedona and rode back the next day. The only bad thing about riding up that road is all the auto traffic, some of it from bike shuttlers. Damn, there I go again.

    You want to buy the tents? Set up the camps? Buy the food?...etc... then we'll all come and do it.
