Views.... isn't that why we ride, why we pedal our bikes endless miles? 3 days of riding, 100 miles each day. Day 1 finished. Day 2 and 3 will start tomorrow. I call it fast touring pace. Take some time to take pictures, and take plenty of rest stops.

Ride from Flagstaff to Sedona by way of a fairly unknown route that gives you views into Sycamore Canyon

Before riding on Sedona Singletrack (Girdner, Cockscomb, Teacup Trails, and out Jordan Road, up Munds and onto Schnebly Road)

Lunch spot looking down at Sycamore

Thought: "This is not my singlespeed, but is sure feels like it." There are some pretty steep grades on the powerline road.

Fast tour pace only requires you to keep pedaling, nothing fast, just pedal.

Casner Mtn. may not be singletrack proper, but it's plenty tough, eh? Steve.
Word, very steep. The transition to a geared FS was a little awkward at first. The culprit was numb hands from the Grand Loop, I have to ride the Leviathan for awhile. :thumbsup:
