The Sedona Mountain Bike Festival wrapped up on Sunday, closing out three days of bike demos, food trucks, live music, beer, two days of sunshine, one day of pouring rain—but not enough to soak anyone's spirit—and of course, countless miles of singletrack bliss surrounded by Sedona's signature red-rock landscape.
This year, Bike Magazine and 10 Barrel Brewing teamed up to throw the festival's customary Saturday night party, and held it a new venue: the Hub building adjacent to the expo area and overlooking the town's skatepark. A damp day didn't keep festival-goers away, and we welcomed some 300 stoked riders into the party, where a wooden token got you a 10 barrel beer, cash got you a pizza from festival favorite Dough Broughs, and DJ Teddy Huxtable was spinning classic tunes that quickly drew the crowd onto the dance floor.
We paused the dance-off to show a selection of six films that Bike had a hand in either producing or distributing in the last year (all of which are available for additional viewing on our YouTube channel), before DJ Huxtable closed out the evening with a group of diehards who got down until the lights came on.
Here are some images from the evening. And if you missed it this time around, see you in 2020.
