Coconino Loop Race 2011

It's good to be back on the bike for long rides. After more than 5 months without doing a 8+ hour bike ride, I logged 3 long rides this weekend during the Coconino Loop Race.

As you may know, this race is from the collaboration of Scott and I. After riding the Grand Loop, we decided that we could come up with a singletrack-filled loop in northern Arizona.

This is the result...




















Good food is a staple for this ride....pulled pork!



The old faithful...Don Miguel. Turns out we grabbed some frozen ones. Very bad idea when you want to eat it on the way up Mingus.

Awesome pics Chad. I debated between hauling a better camera (than my cell phone) and those xc/track shoes for all the expected hike-a-bike. Never HAB'd w/the shoes after all...too lazy to switch em out. Shoulda taken the camera to document all the carnage up on Mingus. Looking forward to riding with (well "behind") you guys again soon! :-)
