May 16: Mingus Mountain 200k

Our first Northern AZ Brevet of the year will have you spellbound with the beauty of the area. It features dramatic Sedona Red Rocks to forested Mingus Mountain summit over and back via scenic roads.

This challenging ride starts and ends at the west side of Sedona, AZ, at approx. 4500 ft. As billed, the route goes over and back up Mingus Mountain thru the historic mining town of Jerome (approx. 7000 ft). Along the way, riders will descend to the Verde River Valley in Cottonwood (3300 ft) towards the turnaround in Dewey/Prescott Valley (4800 ft). Riders will be rewarded with a big roller coaster ride thru Red Rock country, a seldom visited section of Oak Creek (thru Page Springs and Cornville), Jerome's unique art and architecture, and plenty of dramatic views. Climbing is approx. 9,000 ft on mainly secondary roads and highways. Mountain descents are included out and back.
