New Course Options Perfect for Beginners

The 2013 Tour of the White Mountains is more beginner-friendly than ever before, boasting a new venue, multiple new courses and features to get mountain biking newcomers stoked and hungry for more.

Young, old or in the middle...all who want a real taste of mountain biking without the long distance will love the 9-mile singletrack challenge. A new 30-mile forest road fun ride features a gorgeous route through the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest on less technical jeep trails with a fully stocked aid station.

The 30 and 50-mile singletrack distances feature all the greatest trails in the Pinetop-Lakeside region, including Los Burros, Country Club, Chipmunk Connector and Land of the Pioneer trail. New for 2013, the courses will run Los Burros "the correct way" (counter-clockwise) for even better flow and fun.
