800+ Miles Across Arizona, By Mountain Bike

For bikepacker and long-distance racer Lael Wilcox, taking on the Arizona Trail — 800+ miles of desert singletrack through its namesake state — is a challenge unlike any other, and it will test her to the core. The film, “Fast Forward,” is one in a series of shorts sponsored by REI for its “Every Trail Connects” project. Check it out for inspiration and to join Wilcox as she pushes and pedals toward the end.
