THE WHISKEY OFF ROAD

For three days in April, Prescott, Arizona  becomes the center of Mountain Bike Riding.  Yesterday was the first day.


It's called that because all of the races begin and end on Whiskey Row and the Courthouse Square.  

Tarps cover the headquarters of racing teams and vendors along the street.


Bikes and their riders of all ages lined up and filled the street, ready to ride.





At the location of one of the racing teams, extra bikes waited their call to duty.


You can read more about the event and see more photos and a video of some of the racing by going to Doug Cook's story in the Daily Courier here.

Yesterday's weather was perfect but today rain is falling and the course will get very muddy.  I'm staying home.

  4. I would need the Whiskey just to think about doing that race.

    My son would be all over it though. The off-road race, not the whiskey. Well at least the race first.
