    Bike TR - 2019 Arizona Trail Race 750

    Awesome read!

    Iím heading south bound in a few weeks. I have two weeks I can spend on the trail, so I think Iím going to just go from the north terminus down to Phoenix. I canít do the same mileage in a day as you I doubt!

    Shelter question...Iím not used to desert travel so wondering about spider/scorpions/snakes. I am planning on cowboy camping most of the time with a tarp for wind and rain protection when needed. Is this appropriate or do I need something I can fully zip up such as bivi bag or full tent?

    Cheers

    Ive been wanting to do this route. Living on the east coast makes it hard logistically but reading this stokes the fire again. Thanks for writing it up.

    Do it! Although they made the route harder starting this year - about 20mi and +8k elevation gain rather than a bunch of easy dirt road and pavement. But who's counting?


    @rob stokes, sorry didn't see your post previously - did you do the ride? Or did you perish from scorpion stings or frostbite due to inadequate shelter along the way? From Phx south is arguably the best part of the route. But you can always go back and do the AZT 300.

    Hey, I survived! I had to cut my time down a bit but had a real good time riding from the northern start to flagstaff. Hoping to head down again next fall and finish the route off.
