Jeff Kendall-Weed on National Trail in Phoenix Arizona.

Surviving or thriving? 72 hours of desert!

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:

Thanks to the guys at for showing me some trails.

Stoked to meet and ride with Kaj-

Bobby did a great job of riding, crashing, and taking sweet photos (including this thumbnail!)
