    Needs a location

    Ever wanted to ride from Flagstaff to Sedona? One of our SAMBA members has, so he has signed up for this Self-Guided tour offered by Hermosa Mountain Bike Tours. Check out the Tour description below.
    Note: SAMBA is not running the event just offering the opportunity thru Hermosa Mountain Bike Tours.

    Tour dates: June 1st to June 4th. The meeting point for this trip is Sedona, AZ at Over the Edge Bikes. (Thunder Mountain Bikes)

    #### TOUR DESCRIPTION

    This four-day trip has been in the making for quite some time and now it’s here. This adventure includes over 96 miles of amazing Arizona Trail around Flagstaff and south to Mormon Lake before traversing to the Mogollon Rim overlooking Sedona and dropping into beautiful Red Rock Country. You’ll experience a variety of landscapes from start to finish: aspens and ponderosa pines around the San Francisco Peaks and Flagstaff, high desert scrub and high range cactus, and then a drop into Sedona’s world famous red rock escarpments and soaring cliff walls. The change from beginning to end in this trip is something to behold.

    We created this Flagstaff and Sedona mountain bike tour for those who don’t want a guide, don’t want to be supported during the week and generally just want their own self-serve adventure with a bit of logistical assistance. Each day we relocate a very deluxe camp setup (provided by Ready Camp) of (2) 10×10 canopies, full kitchen, dry firewood, camp chairs, fresh water, coolers of food and beverages (you purchase prior to trip) and all your personal gear like tents, bags and clothing. You can go as cheap or deluxe as you want on food, beverages and amenities!!

    SAMBA friends, come join us for the Prescott 6er! After missing out on this fun event for a few years, Colleen and I (previously know as duo team Happy Campers) are going to try it as solos. See the 6er website for all the race details and lodging suggestions.

    "The Prescott 6'er is back for it's 12th year! Bring your friends and teammates for 6 hours of riding and enjoy a relaxed, fun event atmosphere with all the professional touches you are accustomed to while riding some killer laps in Prescott, AZ. Complete the most laps on our unique course in the least time after 6hrs of racing and win."

    The course is 8.4 miles on roughly 90% single track, some steep climbs, some not so steep climbs, tight twisty single track up and down at the end, and a little bit of double track to finish off your lap.
