Last Thursday I went to Sedona and met up with my brother Nate for some Sedona mountain bike action. We were looking for a challenging ride with lots of cool Sedona features and decided on riding Highline. Highline is an advanced trail that goes up around Cathedral rock up high.
We started our ride at the Bike and Bean and while Nate was pounding an espresso shot and I was looking at the map a guy named Clayton said he was heading that same way. With that, the three of us rolled out and started by climbing the shade trails to get to Highline. From here Highline climbs and then the fun starts.
Highline rewarded us with great views and single track. Its really a rather varied trail with narrow exposed stuff perched on the edge, wide open slick rock and some fast rolling single track straight a ways. I now have a lot more video editing capabilities so the the two clips above have all the boring stuff trimmed out for your viewing pleasure. After Highline we road Baldwin Trail along Buda Beach.
I was pleased that since moving away from the East I have not forgotten how to ride a log. We then rode out to the Chicken Head Point and did Broken Arrow trail and some of the Hog trails. Below is another short clip I made mostly to highlight the scenery which is of course great.
And some more footage of us riding Broken Arrow nice and fast. From there we finished out the ride with Mystic and Llama back to the Bike and Bean. It was great to meet a total stranger and meet up for a ride. All and all another great day on the bike.
