    Want to see a mountain bike skills park here locally in Sedona? Express your opinion through this petition to show the city of Sedona that this is a worth while endeavor. The park would provide Mountain Bike specific features that: Reduce multi-user conflicts on Forest Service trails; Help eliminate the need for illegally built trails on Forest Service land; Provide the growing local and non local mountain bike community a safe environment to progress skills; Provide a safe and inspiring stepping stone for outdoor enthusiasts that are interested in Mountain Biking but are intimidated by Sedona's naturally technical terrain; Provide local kids a gateway into the healthy sport of mountain biking that can last a lifetime.

    Agenda for the November 14th Board of Directors Meeting.
  • 7 Nov 2012 9:30 AM | Kevin Adams (Administrator)

    THURS (Nov 15) - 8 AM 




    Beginners welcome. Easy/sociable pace. No drop. We'll ride for 60-90 minutes but there will be at least two "bail-out" spots where you can shortcut back to the trailhead if you're short on time, have mechanical issues, etc.. We'll be there to ride/play together, so this will be at a fun and supportive pace. This is generally for local chicas, however, every now and then we let a lucky guy or two join us (provided he's a beginner! :-)

    Temps are dropping so plan to warm up with coffee/lattes after the ride at the Bike & Bean (by trailhead). The only things ya need for this ride are a BIKE, HELMET, WATER, sense of adventure and a good joke if ya have one. If you have sponsors that's cool, but leave your race kits at home. In fact, if ya wanna throw on a tutu or a tiara on your helmet, then go for it. If you haven't been on your bike in a while, ya might want to make sure your bike is ready to roll. Feel free to stop by any of our local shops to have them check it out, especially the tires (slime? stans?)....tell them you're going on this ride and I'll bet they'll cut ya sweet deal and/or maybe even for free! :-) Questions? 

    See ya there!

    Click to read the latest trails update from the RRRD. Much new trail cleared for adoption as well as new construction. Get ready for many trail days coming up to help bring these into the system and to construct the new ones. Most people will know of the two big ones Hiline and Hangover trails. These two iconic trails will now be brought into the system. We as cyclists must deliver on helping out on these to fix some parts and assist with the maintenance. Are you excited?? I am!!!! Many determined people deserve much thanks in working with the local RRRD to accomplish this!! Get ready for the trail days.
