NOD Fest 2007 - Great Riding!

Thanks to all the great riders who showed up for the week long NOD Fest rides. There were riders from as far away as Germany and Holland, as well as riders from Canada and the States. Quite a few of our own Sedona Gnarly Crew members came out to play. There were not many riders from Phoenix, but there was a great showing of NODs from Tucson including Stan who won the oldest NOD title at 72 years old! Way to go Stan!

We've decided to annex Tucson as part of Canada so that next year the reluctant NOD will ride with the other NODs!'

A special thanks goes out to Rim Rock Water for donating cases of their special Hi-Energy, Structure-Enhanced 100% Natural Artesian Spring Water, known as AquaX, for the all the riders. We did not go thirsty! (Click here to learn more)

And then there was Kenny, a Sedona local, who took the opportunity during NOD Fest to actually learn how to ride a mountain bike. He was so good right from the start that he got mistaken for a real NOD…. He did have several “initiations” however out on the trail with the local vegetables. But all in all, not bad for a first timer. Way to go Kenny!

Mountain Bike Heaven extends a huge thank you to all the NODs and soon to be NODs who helped create the NOD Fest, which we’ve been threatening to do for over ten years. It has finally come to fruition!

Great riding and lots of fun! See you all out there on trail heaven!

NOD Fest 2007 Update

NOD FEST 2007 Update:

We had a great kick-off on Sunday 11/11 with an excellent turnout! The really Gnarly NOD Crew rode at 9am and was out for 4-5 hours. By the time they got back, the afternoon NOD Crew was just getting started. Their ride was laid-back and ended with a spectacular evening sunset up at Chimney Rock! Even Shop Cat got into the action, performing last-minute bike inspections before the riders left the building.

We ended the evening with a dinner BBQ. Great turn out and great riding!

Here is the RIDE schedule for the week (Sunday 11/11 thru Sunday 11/18):
Two rides daily:
Early-Bird Gnarlies RIDE at 9am
Afternoon Laid-Back Gnarlies RIDE at 2pm

If you want to ride, bring all your gear and meet at Mountain Bike Heaven located at 1695 W. Hwy 89A in Sedona, Arizona.

Call ahead to MBH (928) 282-1312 if you are going to ride.

A schedule of activities is posted on the Bulletin Board outside the back door of the shop.

There will be another BBQ on Sunday 11/18 after the rides.

Hope to see all of you out there riding!!!
