I’m going for three weeks at the end of September and including Outerbike in Moab. I’ll miss Rampage this year. I’ll add some more bike evaluations and collect additional material for my trail analysis videos.
I need to shoot a bit more video in the Fruita / Grand Junction area such as an intermediate trail in the Lunch Loops, Horsethief Bench and that amazing drop-in hike a bike, a re-shoot of Dippity, and probably one of the trails farther out Mary’s such as Troy Built or Steves, or both. So this winter I should have enough for a Trail Analysis video for that area.
We’re camping at the Zion River RV Resort in Virgin for a week and riding the amazing trails around us. Tomorrow, Friday, starts the 3 day Hurricane Mountain Bike Festival and I’ll be riding and reviewing a few bikes.
Mountain biking festivals and demo events are a BLAST! Besides getting to ride a bunch of expensive bikes there are often other activities along with food and beer. Very social.
Sedona MTB Festival March 4 – 6, Sedona, AZ. This looks like a great festival. However, budget lodging and camping in the area is limited so bring money. The 3 day pass for $100 is a good deal. Event camping for $125 / adult for two days is not my idea of budget. Sedona is very nice but later in March has better weather and the other festivals are great also. Shuttles.
Only a 15 minute movie but great production values and a big mountains bike packing adventure. This is real MTB! It reminds me of my solo fly-in 5 day MTB adventure ride in Alaska’s remote Wrangell Mountains.
