    SW Knollyfest 2019

    Whoíd be interested in another Knolly gathering in the SW US this Spring?

    If so, where would you prefer to go and when? I just talked to Noel and he said heíd be very interested in bringing some guys and coming down again. Heíll be in Asia the third week in March, so Iíd say letís schedule sometime after that (or before, I suppose).

    Hurricane/St George is always great plus weíd have the use of my house for a base camp again, but somewhere different would also be fun.

    Itís been five years since Iíve been to Sedona so that would be on my list for sure.

    Where else?

    Moab is crazy that time of year but I love the Moab riding.

    Phoenix/Tucson?


    Letís hear your thoughts!

    Teaser from last yearís Hurricane Knollyfest.

    I'd love to go if I can make it, I'll be in SW for awhile. New Mexico would be pretty rad as well!

    I'll be in Sedona mid-March 2019 through the end of the month. I'd travel to PHX or Tucson to meet up with you guys.
    Safe riding,

    I am in as well. After March 9 is much better for me scheduling-wise, but I can try to make whatever work. Hurricane is close, but Sedona is awesome too.

    Interested. Early March works better than late March for me. Would be interested in Hurricane, Sedona, Phoenix or Tuscon. Remember that the Sedona MTB fest is the first weekend of March and the Hurricane mtb fest is the last weekend of March so would probably be best to avoid those places those dates...

    For the roll out of the new Cache, I think.... but it would not surprise me if he were doing some work on other models while there. Gotta get those carbon molds dialed. .

    Good idea! The loop now aptly & officially referred to as the "Tour of the Moon".

    I don't have a Knolly yet, but the Fugitive LT is in the top 2 or 3 bikes.

    What type of accommodations are you considering for this trip? Hotel, camping or house rental? If camping, I'd need to drive down. If hotel or house, I could fly down. Just need to start planning for the time off.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Iíve never had the opportunity to ride in the SW, but thereís a chance, albeit slim, that I could make this. Iíll monitor and do my best.

    Iím going to look into an Airbnb type house rental for those dates and see whatís available. Usually a lot cheaper for a group than hotels plus itís fun having everyone together.

    Do it. Riding on the red rock is a otherworldly experience. And riding with the Knolly gang is always a whoot. Great riders. No egos. All chill.

    How many of those who are likely to attend would be interested in splitting the cost of an AirBNB/house? I don't want to reserve a house that sleeps ten for $2500 only to find out it's only a couple guys interested in renting.

    I'll be camping on the West end of town. Nice quiet spot at a reasonable cost, but limited facilities. I'll have a full kitchen, table and extra chairs and such if anyone wants to join me and doesn't want to lug a deluxe camping setup with them.
    Safe riding,

    Count me in as a firm tentative please. And maybe one other. The nights that I am there will depend on scheduling (of both the house and my work schedule).

    Thanks!

    Man, I still haven't pulled a Sedona trip so this one is reallllllly tempting. Not sure if I can pull it with other spring events but I'll look into it. When you say last weekend in March, are you looking at the 30-31st?

    Yes, March 27-31 actually. Prescott Granite Dells on Wednesday afternoon, then Sedona Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Check out Sunday morning heading for home.

    We'd love to have you. I saw that you said not on the weekend right before or after the Festivals...... but you didn't say anything about right on top of one of the festivals.

    Will try to make this as well but likely won't be able to commit for sure until a week or so out which will probably mean camping

    I'll see what I can make happen. Would be great to make it but it's tough to skip the Hurricane fest since it's about 3.5 hours vs 8 hours driving each way and kind of an annual tradition to catch up with folks down there. We'll see though, I need to make Sedona happen one of these days and would be good to finally make it to a Knollyfest.

    At this point, I will not be able to commit.

    For what it's worth, I'd stay in the Air B&B if I can make it.

    Ohhhh man!! I would love too... I go to Sedona every year for the last 10 years or so and it's awesome!! This time is going to be with the Fugitive and can't WAIT to rail some all the hot spots and beyond with the new ride!

    I would really love to ride with all you guys (put faces to names) and Noel but I'll be out there March 8th til March 16th. Got a house right near the Hogs trails booked with crew.

    I've been to Bentonville AR and Austin Tx with the Fugitive so far (among the local trails on the East coast) since getting the it in late Oct and it just rails rocks and everything else in between. Some of you know I'm on the bigger boy side of the norm and best thing is treating it like my Chilly and Delirium taking it on long journeys riding it just like any other Knolly... so cool..so stout so far I'm telling ya! Good peace of mind it can handle the stuff I throw at it.

    IMO Sedona is a hot spot not to miss! Put it on the map sometime soon. I live in NJ right now and New England and the tri state area are unbelievably fun (love VT) but Sedona is one of the best spring and fall locations to go and have fun on the rocks. They just opened a 2-3 mile section off highline leading down to town that's suppose to be so awesome! Steep shoots etc. I'm debating to put the Fugitive in "Slack mode" for some of the lines on the trip coming up but I really don't think I need it...(running 160mm Fox 36 on there.)

    For me I would love to get up to Moab soon along with Grand Junction and Fruita CO. Haven't been there in 12 years. Not to mention where KnollyBikes are. Never been and would love to get up there.

    I'd be down for a Santa Cruz Knolly ride. I'm in Oakland, and I ride SC usually 1-2 times/mo.

    Ok, so a house that sleeps 10-16 would end up being around $2500 for four nights. If thereís 10 of us thatís only $250 each for four nights.

    Or thereís this one that sleeps 6-8 for $1600 for four nights. Might have a better chance of filling this one.

    Iím going to go ahead and reserve this house but if I donít have 4-5 strong commitments (with deposits) before the 30 day free cancellation window Iíll cancel.

    Let me know.
