Arizona, Mountain biking, outdoors

PRESKITT’S CREW AND THE BLACK CANYON TRAIL

Today was another epic Preskitt crew ride.

I knew it was going to be a great day when I saw this on the counter while getting our morning coffee…. gotta love Arizona.

Last months edition of Dirt Rag.

We rode the northern section of the  BCT (Black Canyon Trail) from Hwy 69 to Hidden Treasure Mine TH and back. It included the Big Bug, Drinking Snake, and Antelope Canyon Sections, 25.9 miles of mountain biker heaven.

Today Dave Sewell  Doug Korell,  Jeff CombsRobert F. Coombs,  Thomas Stotler,  Scott Golden and I started out fully layered with jackets that quickly came off .

Jeff came in the parking lot with his new red bike rack.

The first half of the trail meanders through typical cow pastures and beautiful high desert terrain. – There was a two mile section that was pummeled by post holes cause by horses and I only lost three teeth.

The first half of the ride quickly changes after you pass the water tank into into Antelope Canyon. The singletrack is cut into the side of the canyon and if not careful, you could slip off into the abyss and get an expensive helicopter ride out.

The BCT is a great winter edition for any mountain biker who wants to feel the Arizona sun.

Thanks Dave for the pre ride coffee and thanks Robert for the In and Out Post ride burger.

Great day, great ride and a great crew.
