I had some good conversation with Jeff this weekend. He made a suggestion about doing a round the Rincons mountain bike loop soon. I hope to do it with him sometime in November. Also, I am still pondering the idea of having a multi-stage mountain bike race in Arizona sometime next year. Rather than having solo, self-supported rides like the CTR or the GDR, cyclists would ride to a known location, like campground or hotel for the night.
There is a similar one in Canada called the BC Bike Race. This race costs a little under $2,000! Hoping to do a race in less than $50/day, including lodging, food, and beer. Of course it would be self-supportive, but would be more social than some of the popular, endurance races like the GDR, CTR and AZT 300.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
