LOL....could not have said it better myself Chad

This time around it should be even better as we've changed the routes to give A's and B's more trail and the C's have longer routes that really explore the area around Prescott.

Here's how the routes a shaping up.

On Saturday
everybody goes to Crown King for gas and a great lunch at the CK Fire Department. The 'A' route is total 106 miles, B's 102, and C's 107. Gas is at roughly 55 miles for all loops.

The SATA route has been bumped up a notch this year and includes good technical single track with names like Yankee Doodle, Arrastra Creek and Bee, along with 50" trail and awesome forest roads.

The SATB route has also been bumped up a notch to include a short section of good fun single track trail, some 50" trail, along with miles of awesome forest roads.

The SATC route is designed for the big bikes and there is no single track but there are miles of forest roads, bladed graded road, and pavement

On Sunday we have awesome loops that are a little shorter for the A's and B's, but the C's get to really stretch their legs. The 'A' route is a total of 75 miles, B's 65 miles, and C's 122.

The SUNA and SUNB routes have much in common Sunday with regard to 50" trail and forest roads but the A's also have some more singletrack to ride, including a little hidden gem not many people know about that we decided to break out for you guys. Check out the Sunday A Singletrack video for a preview.

The SUNC ride will take riders to Jerome via the twisty pavement though Mingus Mountain, then out Perkinsville Rd (dirt) to the Verde River. There riders head back towards Chino Valley, out to Williamson Valley, and then loop back via Tonto road and Contreras Rd. The roads are in great shape and the views are awesome. Pictures and video coming soon for the C routes.

Here are a few preview video's of the A and B routes. Pictures and video coming soon for the C routes as well as video of the Saturday A loop.

Saturday B loop jeep road and single track.

Sunday A and B 50" trail and jeep roads.

Sunday A single track.

Of course there is the banquet and raffle Saturday night and as usual our sponsors are being very good to us so bring a few extra buck for raffle tickets
