Black Canyon Trail-Arizona

The Black Canyon Trail-Arizona.
I have been hearing a lot of talk about this BCT so I had some convenient days off during the week again and met Shawn Gregory down in Arizona to ride the BCT point to point. Shawn was already in AZ at his home in Fountain Hills so it was good timing to do this ride. It is a shuttle and a pain to do it but worth the effort. I drove straight through after work on Monday night and slept about 2 hours before I met up with Shawn. I suppose it is good training with little sleep. Right. We started just North of HWY 69 that heads to Prescott and rode to the Carefree highway. The ride was 67 miles point to point and 5500 feet of climbing.  Ride time was 7 hours and 9 minutes according to my Garmin. The single track is amazing. It flows so well and the climbs are cut just right. The single speed is a good option on this ride as everything is rideable. Get out and ride it.

Sunrise outside of Phoenix on Tuesday morning.. Ride time!
