I am bringing my Kiwi friend Pete on an MTB trip out West similar to the one I did back in 2007. Looking for some local riders and advice on trip planning/timing/weather. Right now we were thinking starting in late April or May for 14-21 days - rotating schedule of 2-3 days riding and then a day off (suggestions for off days would be good too. Starting/ending in Denver and aiming for rides in CO, UT, and AZ. Moab and Sedona for sure. I like the looks of Buffalo Creek's Blackjack, but Pete's not into that - this will be all trail riding. Have some riding friends in Denver, Colorado Springs, Flagstaff, and Phoenix though I'm not certain on availability without solid dates. Thanks!
