Mountain biking in sunny Arizona is phenomenal! In a twist of events, I ended up with airfare to Mesa (a suburb of Phoenix) for a long weekend. With no real “budget” or anything, I just wanted to ride with some locals, getting as much bike time as possible, and hopefully with minimal cactus incidents!
While in the state for only 72 hours, I was lucky enough to ride South Mountain extensively, including Devastator, Geronimo, National, and Mormon trails. I also rode Pass Mountain Trail, as well as some trails over at Hawes. And to cap it all off, we had a RAD ride on Mt Lemmon down in Tuscon. So much fun!
My “Trail Intern” video is also from this trip:
