To all who are interested in Phoenix AZ unicycling. I and another unicyclist will be meeting at the Eldorado Park (Mcdowell & 77th St.) this coming Saturday 6-30-07 at 10AM. This is the time and place stated on the ‘arizuni’ webpage for their monthly gatherings (though I suspect this may be a defunct group).
I know this is not an ideal time/temp setting for the summer & if you want to ride but not at that location/time of day please let me know by responding to this post.
My goal is to get a group of riders together for regular rides (coker, muni, trials, whatever).
I assume you are referring to Sedona? I edited and added a mtb video from South Mountain (^) that looks like the most awesome place to MUni! Have you been there also? I can’t wait to try that place and it’s only about 5 hour drive from where I live! Only thing is that I would want to go soon since it get soooo freaking HOT in AZ! You guys might be used to it, but I’m a hot weather-hater, lol. :o
There is absolutely a tonne of crazy downhill stuff on South Mountain. You should join us sometime Also, all of you should come to the first AZ Mountain Uni Weekend on Feb 13-15 (see my signature below).
Yesterday, the original thread poster and I just finished the 14.3 mile ride of all of South Mountain from east to west on National Trail. It’s an amazing trail with a huge variety of terrain, and beautiful views and desert life (eg, we say a Peccary) the whole way. We’ll certainly be riding some of trail during the AZ muni weekend. We’ll also be riding Holbert for those of you who want to ride one of the most challenging (and super fun) muni trails anywhere.
I found this website, mountainbikebill.com a few months back, and this is the most in depth, beautifully designed website with great pics, topo maps, detailed directions and descriptions of TONS of great trails from across the US! Check out this amazing 5 day tour across AZ! Day 2 is Sedona, and day 3 is South Mtn.
