New train tracks going in from Tucson to Casa Grande resembles canal riding, only thing different is the occasional train that passes by. Good stuff when you can ride to the trailhead...



....I used the track to connect to the Tortolitas Mountain Preserve trails.

Music: Rage and Sonny Clark
Post-ride beer: Mighty Arrow dedicated to Yuri, the father of canal riding in Phoenix.

Nice! I used to love riding old rail and canal lines in Northern IL.
The Illinois Prairie path was just out my front door and you could ride for miles on a series of old rail lines through prairie land.
the Hennepin and Illinois and Michigan canal trails were excellent too.
I really miss that kind of riding.

Let me in on it.

I will be sleeping under the stars on the AZT next to the bike tomorrow night :D
Will do - think cross bike brevet.
We did under the stars last weekend. I'm thinking the next PEE should be an overnighter.

Have to say that does look like a interesting adventure. Especially they way you all seem to start local work out to an area camp and back head home.
