big ride up mormon mountain
just did a big armbike ride up mormon mtn - 1500ft. of climbing in 3 miles of single track! that's 1 foot in 10 and that's steep! mormon mtn is about 20 miles south of flagstaff, and is a great trail, totally unused, moist and covered with pineneedles. it's sorta cool to knock off first ascents and stuff. it was definately one of the most difficult workouts ever, my arms and neck were burning! the down hill was sweet, fast and rocky, got a flat and did a high speed rollover. the trail also bisects the arizona trail, see the pics, one goes to mexico, one to utah, almost 800 miles of trail! later, steve.
