23rd Tour de Rez to kick off Memorial Day weekend
The 2013 TDR will commence its summerlong, four-stage adventure, with the first leg beginning at Grand Canyon over the Memorial Day weekend. Participants will have the chance to experience world-class adventure, build trails and serve the rez as they made their way around Dine' Bikeyah. This year's stages will include backpacking at Grand Canyon; service, climbing and backpacking at Navajo Mountain/Rainbow Bridge; trail restoration and service in the Carrizo/Chuska Mountains; and a bike trek from Shonto to Window Rock. Top photo (from the 2012 Tour) is the crew on its ride from southern Utah into Monument Valley. Trailwork(such as on the Rainbow Trail in the bottom pic) led to over five miles of new trails in the Carrizo Mountains!
Our network of trails continues to grow and we hope to build many more miles of trail and reach out to more communities than ever with this program in 2013.
