Sedona Big Friggin Loop

Sedona Big Friggin Loop (SBFL)


April 1, 2017 8:30am

We will be starting and finishing at Bike n Bean with beer and pizza. Bring $10 if you want to eat and drink. Bike n Bean will also be allowing us to use their parking lot this year! This will help with distributing our cars among the shops that are there instead of taking up all the parking at one specific spot.

Upon finishing, stick around for the post-ride party at Bike n Bean. Bike n Bean will be providing FREE beer; pizza will be available and will typically comes in waves of 4-6 boxes for anyone that pays $10.

GPX for 2017 is available.  Significantly new route, with some new trails, developed with thanks to John Schilling. SBFL_2017_v1.gpx

See TopoFusion’s Tutorial on uploading GPX tracks for help loading the GPX file onto your GPS.

Route Warning:
Due to the nature of this route, I strongly advise you to have a GPS with the GPX file loaded, and some of the maps below. Sedona is generally a well-marked area, nonetheless, as you will see, there are tons of trails that deviate from the trail (unmarked most of the time). I highly recommend that you either pre-ride the trail or consider take a GPS on the route. ESPECIALLY if you are a local and think you know the trails/route, you need a GPS. It’s the only way to be sure you ride the correct course. The route doesn’t necessarily take the most obvious or most ridden connections.

  1. Is this event actually full?

  2. Registration opens on the 1st of March, one month before the event.

  3. Every year something seems to come up but this year I am in.

  4. So it’s free unless you want the pizza after the ride?

  5. Added sign-up above.

  6. My knees hate me

  7. We will be posting the updated GPX file for 2017 shortly.

    Just so everyone knows…you can also upload the GPX file to your Trailforks account and have it saved on your Trailforks app on your phone, if you’re like me and don’t own a GPS!

  12. Will the start/end point still be just outside of oak creek ?

  13. Reread the description. Answered my question. See you there.

  14. 2017 file is posted.

  15. Hi, I just moved to the area and would love to do this event! Is it really full? Any way I can still get in?

  16. The route has been added to the Trailforks ‘route’ database. As a backup, login into Trailforks on a desktop computer, go to the route (link below) and click on the ‘fav’ button at the top of the map. Then, while out riding, open the Trailforks app on a smartphone and it will show under ‘My routes’. Again, use this as a backup plan to a GPS.

  17. Is there a cue sheet or trail list. I have uploaded the gpx onto my Garmin but curious to know the trails….thx Bill

    • No, there isn’t. But if you click on the trailforks link above your post, there’s kind of a list of trails you’ll be on. You can then zoom in on the route and see exactly what trails the route covers.
