    Some motivation...

    ...to stop riding the same single track that you always ride and venture out into the unknown, even if it is double track.

    Ride a gasline road until it ends or until you see the Private Property sign


    Just find stock ponds on State Trust Land and connect the singletrack; cow singletrack can be amazing!


    Pack your bags and find the steepest Forest Roads in Arizona


    Ride to the border on double track and singletrack/immigrant trails


    Find some cow singletrack and take it until the sun goes down


    Ride on old highways


    Make double track fun by riding in scenic areas like the Saguaro National Park

    "Doing the right thing" is like water. It's good for all living things,and flows without thinking about where it's going.

    I'd love to do a great road ride to Gadsen Coffee or even beyond to Sasabe, the route screams to the "roadie" in me

    One of the better threads in a long time. I don't know any of the areas, but the old highway pic is my favorite. What a cool ride!!

    About 1 mile northeast from Willow Springs/Oracle Highway (the start for the Antelope Peak Challenge). I was looking for a way to bypass some highway in the race and thought that I might find some stuff on the other side of the highway (based on aerial shots). Only found that segment of the highway, which I thought was a great find.
