|Mountain biking route for the AZTR750.|
There are a slew of logistics to figure out over the next year. The most glaring one, how to affix my bike as comfortable as possible to my back for the portage through the Grand Canyon. Gives me chills just thinking about it. Having gear to prepare me for the cold northern Arizona nights & any possible storms that may roll through. I don't like to be cold!! Arriving at remote re-supply locations during business hours will be a potential challenge. Among other things, convincing K to drive to Utah to pick me up!!
I'll need my fair share of luck too, seems like all the 750 finishers dodge some kind of snafu along the way.
I felt physically & mentally prepared for an attempt this year, but not enough vacation time. I think I know what it takes to line up for this event. We'll see.
Here are a few ride reports from recent years, including this past April.
