Phoenix to Lake Havasu - Big Bike Bomb Run April 2013

RIDE POSTPONED!


It's official (as it can be) - The big bike bomb run from Phoenix (well, Wickenburg) to Lake Havasu is April 20 and 21, 2013. That's right -This time it is an overnighter!

Meet time: 7 a.m. in Wickenburg
Place: Ike's Cookhouse (NW Corner of US-60 & El Recreo Dr. in Wickenburg)


There are a few different routes we can take out and back. If Brown's Crossing north of Alamo Lake is open, I would like to go that route on the way out. Anybody have current info on the crossing? If it's wet we can head south and take the side trip to Swansea and then continue to Parker. I have another route for the return that comes out of Havasu Heights. It's a little rocky and technical in spots, but still big bike friendly.

Post up any other route ideas and if we should wait for you in Wickenburg.

Nightstalker is hosting the GPX file with routes for Day 1 and Day 2.

Disclaimer: We will ride fast. We will probably ride late. If history is any indication (2010, 2011, 2012) we will likely have problems and/or break something. With that in mind, come prepared (for anything) with a well maintained bike and lots of energy, food and water. Murphy's Law will take care of the rest.
