Planning a 2019 Mountain Bike Getaway

Winter Blues on the Black Canyon Trail

Are you tired of winter? When was the last time your tires were on real live DIRT?  Unless you are lucky enough to live in an area that bypasses winter (like us!) chances are it’s been a long time! The time is now to get on the computer and start organizing some riding trips before the summer passes you by with other commitments.

We were recently lucky enough to attend the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival and if you have not had the chance to attend that early season festival, well what are you waiting for?  Put it on the calendar for next year.

Tired of aimlessly clicking around looking for amazing places and events to go to?  Never fear we are here! It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it!  We have been lucky enough to attend some amazing events and locations over the past 20+ years and we have a lot to say about all of them.

First Stop:

Crankjoy.com’s DESTINATIONS page.  Need some inspiration for a new location or never been to one of the MTB Mecca’s?  Check out some sweet ideas from SEDONA to MOAB, BREVARD to THE TETONS.

Next UP:

Not wanting to organize all the logistics, then hit up a festival. You’ll most definitely have plenty to keep you busy and suggested trails to ride with like-minded friends. Here are our favorite festivals for 2019

Get Creative:

Ask friends, local shops or on forums and social media.  I think you’d be really surprised with where you can find fun riding these days.  We were surprised with our recent drives across the country to come up on some amazing trail systems in Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas of all places.  Some of our long-time favorite places to ride are driven right by and seem to fly under the radar by travelers seeking more popular destinations.

Wilson State Park in the middle of Kansas might surprise some with fun trails in a place where some think is just a bunch of flat grasslands.

So what are you waiting for?  Get your tires pumped and smack some fresh lube on and get out there. Expand your horizons today. If it’s still winter where you are, get outta there!  I’m sure you are looking forward to some dirt and sunshine.  It’s out there and ready for some early season adventure if you are.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
