Cycle: 5 Great Arizona Rides

The current issue of Bicycling Magazine includes a list of the "Best Bike Ride in Every State." While the mag claims that the list is just a starting point, it made an interesting choice for Arizona, a state known for some legendary dirt and tarmac.

The choice made for us locals -- supposedly based on a survey of local bike shop owners, club riders and other area experts -- is the freshly carved and completed Black Canyon Mountain Bike Trail.
