AZ forum

Did you post in the AZ forum? I took a trip to Phoenix during Thanksgiving weekend. I got a chance to ride some of the SoMo trails and Goat Camp. Really, great riding...if you like some of the rocky, techy stuff :thumbsup:

The locals are pretty well organized and guided me around. I plan to head back up this winter or spring, too. I've heard there are some great trails in Sedona and Prescott...haven't been to Tucson, either.

We spent thanksgiving in Sedona. There is definitely 2 full days of riding that can be done over there. My plan was to ride at south mountain on the way up there but did not happen. Certainly worth riding in Sedona

Second Sedona

The weather channell said the temps are in the 50s during the day even 60 if you get lucky. Fun place great rides, great food, funky hippies and killer views. I'd say 3 days of riding are easily found if you weak like me. I have 2 18 mile rides I like to do when I go there, the third day is just frosting.

Phoenix = South Mountain rocky goodness.
Tucson = 50 Year Trail..couple more too.
Sedona = 2 days worth of Red Rocks.
Flag = Snowed in.

...also head a bit NW and hit up Bootleg Canyon for both XC and some good DH stuff.

Ride South mountain, South of Phoenix off interstate 10. Lots of rocky technical singletrack to climb and drop down into. For speed, take the Desert Classic. It flows along the Eastern base of the South Mountain, twisting and turning in and out of gullys and flood ditches with some tech sections thrown in for good measure.
