Wish I could make this. Beautiful area. CTR is a great group who helped us with a ride plan back in '09. Our group of 5 from the San Diego area had a great time with their assistance.

I'm sure they have some outstanding loops planned out.

I cross posted this event to the AARG site to get some more exposure.

Any good campgrounds nearby? I saw a KOA not too far from the Elks Lodge.

I'm interested but have not found any info on the type of roads/trails and difficulty levels. IF I go, I would like to know what bike to ride, my GSA or WR250, or DR350 (if I don't sell it). Obviously, the trail descriptions would help me decide.

More info

Here's some more information. Thanks the the cross post Sonoran. I don't think I met you in my days in the valley. I left there a few years for the higher life. Looking forward to meeting you and hope some others come up for the fun! Nightstalker, 4Play, OldtimerTC, Refokus, et al where are you? There's a route for everyone. Pick your ride for the level. The A routes will definitely be challenging and a smaller/lighter bike would be the choice for that. Some really nice single track. The C route is targeted at the bigger dual sports and shouldn't be a problem for anyone with some fire road kind of experience. I'll get some more info on the routes and post.
General Information:

2 Day Registration—$125.00 Includes Sat./Sun. breakfast buffet, Sat. lunch, Sat. dinner, Roll Charts, GPS tracks and event gift.

Hey Todd! Long time no see/ride. Yep, this will be right in your wheel house. Don't know if you've riden up here much, but there's more then I knew about for sure. The routes are being laid out by some guys that have been riding here a long time. Hope to see you then.

Any updates on recommended campgrounds? If my wife doesn't tag along, definitely would rather camp.
TIA

Depends on the kind of camping you want to do. Flagstaff is surrounded by national forest so there's lots of primitive camping. Some real nice spots on NF522 off Snowbowl Road which is off 180 nw of Flag. There's about 15 numbered spots that are first come first served I think. Lots of other areas off 180 like NF164 or up Schultz Pass Rd. Or SW of town off Woody Mountain Road south of route 66. Or off Lake Mary road that heads SSE out of town. There's some campground kind of places that have tent camping on route 66 on the west side of town. Went by one at the corner of route 66 and Woody Mountain Rd on the way to build trail on National Trail Day. Not sure if it's any good or not but looked ok. One next to that called Wild Bill or something like that too. I'm sure there's others since that's a major activity in this area. The CTR site has a pointer to a Flagstaff site with info too.

Awesome! I don't remember if we've ridden together or not. I think so. Might have been one of Nightstalkers BBF. If you like single track bring the small bike and do the A or B. Or, bring a trailer and do a different type each day!
