It's a rare ride in Flagstaff that doesn't make a good loop. Somehow. But, if you're out riding unfinished trails, like we were today, you're left with little choice. Unfinished trails almost always dead-end. The Arizona Trail in the vicinity of Arizona Snowbowl dead-ends. That's where we rode today. From town up to the dead-end and back again. Out-and-back. Uncommon words in these parts.
This new section of the Arizona Trail is already a great trail. Once it's finished, and we're able to make loops out of it, it's going to be awesome. Good to ride with old friends today, too: Ken, Art, and Jason.
I put together a 5-minute video of our descent, from the dead-end back down to Snowbowl Road just so you can get an idea of how cool this trail already is, in its raw form. For whatever it's worth, I captured this footage with my $20.00 808 micro-camera, velcro'd to my helmet. It ain't HD, but heck, ya get what ya pay for...
