BUMBLE BEE – BCT BUMBLE BEE WITH SUNSET PIC, Bike Arizona –
We’re going back to the northern-most part of the Black Canyon Trail at Bumble Bee! We’ll ride an out and back to the north on ultra-sweet, keep you focused, rolling single-track with beautiful views and interesting trail features. There are no long steep climbs and little to no exposure but parts of this trail are considered “rideable” technical, and so this ride is best for intermediate and up. It will be an approx. 15 to 17 mile out and back ride, about 2.5 to 3.5 hours. This ride is best for intermediate and up. BRING AT LEAST 100oz of water.
Back at the lot after the ride, we’ll have our Sunset Picnic. This secluded area is set high and overlooks the hills. A perfect place to hang out for a little while, watch the sun go down and socialize!
If you plan to stay on for the picnic, BYOB along with your favorite picnic food, plus a little extra to share. You may want to bring sweats or a change of clothes as it may cool down fast out there.
Contact organizer if you have any questions about this ride at 602-448-9567.
