You're such a tease!

Looks great!! Can't wait for the rest of the essay.
I have been wanting to do the AZT, or parts of it anyway, for the past year or so. I love mtn bike touring but haven't done any for a while. What section did you do? What sources did you use for planning, logistics??

Nice Kona.

Nice Kona.
I did most of the "rideable/safe" sections from montezuma pass to superior az.
i did a few one night test runs and for planning i used:
scott morris (www.topofusion.com)
mountain biking the arizona trail by andrea lankford
az state public lands office
and dave hinkley's e-trail guide
and other misc sources and my own knowledge of az
thanks. that kona is great and versitle.

that looks super fun.
did you need the GPS, or was the map enough?
gps was necessary. you can never have enough resources/refrences for this stuff.

Incredible ride! That orange water bottle wouldn't happen to be a 24 HITOP bottle would it?
