Flagstaff is located at 7000 feet above sea level at the foot of the San Francisco Peaks and surrounded by the worlds largest ponderosa pine forest. Our town’s history goes back thousands of years and includes native-American heritage, pioneer history, Route 66, the BNSF Railroad, Northern Arizona University, logging, three National Monuments, (Sunset Crater, Wupatki and Walnut Canyon), and many other points of interest.
Most of our mountain bike trails are located riding-distance from the shop in the Coconino National Forest. Trails span a broad range of ability levels, from very easy trails that are suitable for the whole family to classic rocky single track to ultra-technical downhill routes. Absolute Bikes has been actively working with the local bike advocacy group and the Coconino National Forest to design and build new routes for the past two decades. Needless to say, we are pretty familiar with what’s out there!
Although there are a limited number of road riding opportunities, the few that we have are world class. At such a high elevation, Flagstaff is an ideal location to ride and train!
