    Sedona Double H ride (version EP) info

    I'd like to lead/co-lead a Double H ride that starts at Bike and Bean at 10:00. This will be a
    pretty aggressive pace.

    My plan is to roll out at 10:00 following this general route description:

    Made in the Shade
    HL
    Baldwin
    Templeton
    HT, M8, M9 (whatever gets us under 179 and on to Little Horse)
    Little Horse
    Chicken Point/Broken Arrow
    High on the Hog
    Hog Wash
    Broken Arrow
    Possible Sub Rock diversion
    Chicken Point
    Little Horse
    Llama
    Back to Bike and Bean

    I may do HO after this, but I'm not committing to that.

    I'm looking for someone that's ridden both High on the Hog and Hog Wash to join the ride
    and help to get the group rolling those particular trails as planned.

    Any interest in joining?

    visual clues to describe where High on the Hog starts and then where Hog Wash splits off?


    PM me if you think this intel is more sensitive to forum-sweeping than the already
    published map (though at this point, I don't know that it matters).

    Just head left on slickrock instead of dropping down BA right after the trail climbs up and around the jeep playground (merry go round and the staircase). Make sense? You can also veer off the BA and tool around on the merry go round and then jump back on the trail on the north side of the jeep area and then it's 50 yds or so to the turnoff to High on the Hog. If you start dropping down a long techy section you'll know you've gone too far. Hog Wash is the first right after the pass.

    This is pretty much exactly the ride I'd like to do on Saturday minus Sub Rx diversion. I know where the Hog turns are located. I have never been on H---E but I'm hoping that Dale's map will point the way. Thing is, I am not sure I care to start at 9AM and I know I cannot keep the pace you want to maintain. I'm all about taking my time, taking pictures, and soaking in the experience. OK... truth time...I'm in really lousy shape right now! I am not volunteering to lead a ride, but if anyone happens to be rolling from the same place that my carload starts (probably parking at IGA), then you are welcome to join my crew for a low-stress roll on Sedona trails

    What time? 10:00?

    I've been reading these threads about riding Sedona and I thought there needed to be a B ride. So KK I know where the turn off is and we ride at a very similar pace (camera's in tow) and I didn't want to ride at a A pace on Saturday anyway so it sounds like I'll be with you again. Yeah!! Dave you can definitly hang with me too. I'm glad you spoke up KK cause I was wondering about riding alone up there, seems to be a lot of pressure on the A pace this year. Not to offend anyone (A crowd).
    I need to ride more and work less.

    10ish @ IGA was what I had in mind. But I want to reiterate... I will not be bookin along at your typical Evil pace. If you think this ride is going to take you four hours, then it'll likely take me six. Pictures, snacks, gasping for air... all are on my agenda. Maybe even a nap or two You still sure you want to combine rides? I guess if need be, you can split off with a faster bunch after we do the Hogs (or before if someone else is along who knows the Hog turns).

    Perfect!! I hope you don't mind, I've added this ride to:
    http://forums.mtbr.com/poll.php?do=s...ts&pollid=2532

    Maybe you could swing into the Bean before the ride to pick up any Caffeine Junkies? This will be a great loop!! Relaxed pace and likely the first to tap into the Beer stash. THANKS GUYS!!

    More choices.
    If lovin you is wrong, I don't wanna be right

    Hey, wait a minute! Mr. Zul, I see you overlooked the part of my post where I stated "I am not volunteering to lead a ride." How about I show up around 10, and the first 5-7 who happen to be there and want to tag along are welcome. Any more and I'm handing out Dale maps and saying good luck. Swing by the bean? I would rather that they head out as their own group if that's ok. Didn't you get the memo? I'm a downhiller now

    So it's IGA,10ish then?Psuedo leader
    Not that familiar with some of the trails and routes mentioned and i've been wanting to try some new stuff this time up there.
    What bike to ride? Quasi or the El Rey? Do i dare consider the SS on this ride? Like I said,not sure what to expect.

    H...E would be cool on an SS. nothing super huge on the route, so you could ride the El Rey, but some steep drop ins and at least one over 3 footer to slight up hill lading on HH.

    I'll be on my Mach5 not my SS

    Would like to come to an easier paced double H ride. If DG has room for 2 more (myself and friend) would love to join. If not, I can ride with some others but I am only semi-familiar with these routes and would be a lousy leader.

    Patrick,

    What are you thinking you're looking at as far as time and distance? It sound about right for for three of us from Albuquerque... I, for one, would probably also be up for HO at the end of the ride. Got room? As far as I can tell, you're still saying 10:00 at Bike & Bean.

    I'm not real sure on distance, but I'd guess it's around 20 miles and, with various stops, will
    take about 4 hours?

    [/SWAG]

    But as they say, "it's gonna be what it's gonna be."



    We'll ride it. We'll love it. It'll be so much fun that we won't give a crap about a clock or an
    odometer.

    Not sure if it's the GPX file or something with my system but the elevation profile was completely jacked in that GPX file so I fixed it, here's the same route with corrected elevation.

    Sounds like a plan- I think that I can sell that!

    BTW- if anyone wants anything from the bikefix store (store.bikefix.net), shoot me an e-mail by midday Friday and I'll bring it out... 20% off if you're paying cash money and I don't have to pack or mail it. We've got some awesome Swiftwick compression/recovery socks, wool riding socks and arm warmers. The e-mail address is on the website. See everyone on Saturday- I'm really looking forward to it!
