Black Canyon Trail Shuttle Ride!
Join us for a fun and challenging morning on the BCT! We will be riding approx 24 miles, from the Black Canyon City Trailhead, south to the New River Road / Emery Henderson Trailhead. This ride is best suited to high intermediate and up, with good endurance and technical skills. Plan on 3+ hours of mildly to moderately technical riding, with several long climbs along this beautiful and scenic route. We will be meeting at the Emery Henderson Trailhead at 9AM to plan shuttles. From there, we shuttle up to Black Canyon City Trailhead to begin our ride. IF THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH SIGN-UPS FOR A SHUTTLE RIDE, WE WILL DO AN OUT AND BACK FROM EMERY HENDERSON.
