I just did a road trip to the Grand Canyon and mountain biked at various locations along the way. It was so fun! I love taking my mountain bike on road trips. I did this a lot last summer too but I didn't post about it. I'm going to try to post about it this summer so I can compile for my own memory a list of great places to mountain bike, and road bike, on trips.
I'm still trying to figure out the best way to find out where to mountain bike when I visit a place. The resources I used on this trip were trails.com, singletracks.com and local bike shops. trails.com and singletracks.com are hit and miss. They didn't show this fantastic opportunity at Las Vegas that I was 2 minutes away from when we stopped at Red Rock canyon. I discovered that when I got back to the hotel and googled "mountain biking Las Vegas". I was bummed. Local bike shops paid off in Flagstaff and Albuquerque. There are so many trails that it helps to have a real person tell you what's the best one to try out for a 2 hour ride. but trails.com found some gems in Oklahoma, Texas, and Missouri.
So, here goes...
