Sedona is everything everyone told us it would be: beautiful, stunning scenery, red dirt, red rocks, world class mountain biking, a crowded touristy town full of hippie like people looking for the vortex, and rich folk vacationing. What I feel about Sedona is pretty much the same as I feel about South Lake Tahoe. Both areas are beyond beautiful and have great mountain biking, I just can’t stand the endless stream of cars and stops lights in the town. Thankfully it’s fairly easy in both places to avoid the town.
What really made this stop wonderful is we know a couple from San Diego, Matt and Timoni, who now live in Sedona. There’s nothing like having a local guide you around the trails, escort you to a beautiful boon dock spot, and direct you to the real unknown gems in the area. And on top of that we had a great group of friends from San Diego join us for a long weekend, Mike, Chris, Laurie, and old man Birch. And of course R is here! He’s tagging along on our trip till he wears out his welcome.
There was one minor problem. I cracked my seat tube on the second to last day of biking. A slight bummer since one of the main focuses of this trip is mountain biking. So I missed the last ride with the group, and from what Amelia and the group said it was quite a ride.
So I’m getting a new frame, and will definitely be back in the saddle for the Hurricane stop, if not hopefully before. Next stop the Grand Canyon. We love reading your comments, so please keep them coming. Enjoy the pics.
