The 2008 Show Low Bluff Tour of the White Mountains (in Northern Arizona, USA) presented by Cellular One is in its 13th year, but in some ways it’s a brand new event. The endurance mountain biking event, which will be held Saturday, Oct. 4, still will be on trails in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest located near Pinetop-Lakeside, AZ, but some of those trails are new.
Promoter Todd Sadow says that the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest and TRACKS, the local trail construction and advocacy club, have worked hard to rehab existing trails and build the new trails that exemplify the best of Northern Arizona riding, with climbs, fun and challenging, groovy singletrack, and of course spectacular mountain scenery.
The Tour of the White Mountains include 60, 30 and 15-mile MTB endurance options. For more information, see www.epicrides.com/towm/towm.htm.
