October 9 eh?azepicriderandrunner said:Very reasonable ride. The route we did had plenty of refueling spots. We took it pretty "slow." Sycamore Rim and Williams were probably the most technical points of the ride.
I am going to make a GPX file of the different options, ie cutting out Mingus and going through Jerome, going up Casner Mountain, taking Munds from Flag instead of AZT, going up to the Kachina Peaks, etc.
I hope this is going to become a classic loop for beginner bikepackers that want places to refuel and plenty of options to choose from.
Very nice. I know of quite a few beginning bikepackers who live very close.azepicriderandrunner said:I hope this is going to become a classic loop for beginner bikepackers that want places to refuel and plenty of options to choose from.
Can't say I would not complain if I had to go through some snow drifts, but it can't be as bad as the GLR we did at the end of May.sunset1123 said:October 9... hmm... The high country will be starting to get quite chilly at night by then. The first snow of the year sometimes isn't far off by then either. Hoping for an "indian summer" like we got last year maybe?
