After much procrastination, flights have finally been booked. I’m going to AZ for what will be my 4th trip to SSAZ. I am very much looking forward to this, as we will likely be buried under feet of snow in VT. I will welcome warmer temps, dry desert climate, blue sky and warm sun with open arms.
I’ve built in a few extra days around the event to try and hit some of the areas I’ve wanted to visit for the last few years. I’ve heard many good things about the Black Canyon Trail up in the Phoenix area, an 80 something mile trail with over 20 access points, so I could potentially ride certain sections without having to commit to the whole thing.
I’d love to get back up to Sedona. I want to ride the Dells in Prescott. But most likely, I’ll be hovering around Tucson, which is not the worst fate in the world. I’ve really grown to like it there, and I’m really looking forward to seeing my southwestern friends.
Guess I better start “training”. Anyone have any suggestions on trails I should try and ride?
