Arizona, Mountain biking


This newest section of the Arizona Trail begins at the bottom of Snowbowl road and climbs up just past the Aspen Corner trail head.

The trail opened up in September of 2011 and according to Ben (left who helped design and build much of the trail) took ten years to complete.

Headed back up to the AZ trail next Saturday with some friends to ride it again before the monsoons hit.

Here are the pics from our group ride.



We typically ride this section of the  Az trail twice a year. Summer for the green and fall for the colors.

What an amazing place …What an amazing space of nature and beauty.

Tatonka before Tennesse.

Just wanted to post a few pics from the smart phone of another “last” ride with my daughter Natascha….Yep for real they leave @ 5:00 am tomorrow.

We had a good 12 miles of singletrack tonight….. good times as usual.

It has been great to have our daughter live close to us for almost a decade … now that she has moved away, it is a reminder more than ever to love the ones your with while they are with you.

Getting in a few more bike miles before the move to Tennessee

Grateful for the miles we have gotten in over the past eight years here in Prescott.

We are going to attempt one more on Monday before the U Haul takes my daughter and her bike to Tennessee.

Quote of the ride.

“Go into your next season as positive as you can ….go do what your are going there to do.”

“Work at it with the end game up front” .

Dad/Daughter Mtn Bike Ride

My daughter Natascha and I are not saying it, but we are attempting in a quiet unspoken way to create a few last memories before she and Adam move from Prescott to Tennessee.

Mountain biking is in part our way of way of accomplishing that.

Gonna really miss my little girl and the time we have on our bikes.

I’m gonna get her bike fixed up and tuned before she heads east.  Hopefully she can ride and show me a few Tennessee trails when we go to visit.
