Sedona Epic

I led another A group ride out of Bike n Bean, this was the fastest ride of the entire week. Here is a nice picture of half of the group at Chicken Point. We started off with 10 people before breaking in to two different groups. Don't some of these people just look fast? That is Tom A in the Vassago Jersey, Doug with the guns, and Zach and Co (not pictured).

Our group rode Broken Arrow to Schnebly Hill Road, Munds, Cow Pies to Damifino (show below before the hike-a-bike to the saddle).

The view from the saddle with the new ride. After 6 days of 30-mile+ technical riding on the ss, I am now in "singlespeed shape."

Doug always makes things look so easy

My new favorite trail in Sedona, check out those over hangs.

It is a little tricky in a few sections, ledges avail. If you are not careful, you could take a spill. It reminds of the portal in Moab.

We dropped back down to Munds via some sweet singletrack, over to Mystic, Cathedral, Templeton, HT and finally Bell Rock Pathway.

We got back to the Bean just in time for some pizza and beer. Jim at the Bean is one of the most amazing shop owners I have met. Self-less, generous, and super nice. If you are ever in Sedona, stop by for some coffee and beta.

In case you want more Sedona riding, check out this race this Saturday. It is guaranteed to be one of the most technical endurance races you have ever done, the Sedona Big Friggin Loop.
