Right about in the area of the East entrance to chiva?

If the ride is dirt roads, what do you call "fast paced"?

Russ has answered here already I see. There is about 7 mi of dirt road going in, then wide, rocky and occasionally steep for the next 15 miles. After that, back out on the 7 mi road.

You can always ride in and see how it looks, turn around if you don't think you brought "the right bike that day".

Arivaca Outback

The "Arivaca Outback" will happen February 8th & 9th this year. Come up (4000') and ride around with us. We have two houses and 60 acres on which you can camp if you want to spend the night. My darling wife will be in San Diego at an all-you-can-eat wheat grass camp so we can stay up late and use foul language.

The bar (La Gitana: http://www.yelp.com/biz/la-gitana-cantina-arivaca) will be open as long as we are there. Maybe they have to close at 2am.

Basically it will be the same venue as the last three years with a BBQ for those who sign up and show up and sourdough pancakes for those who remain. If you are tied to town come up for the day.

An old thread for more info.: http://www.klr650.net/forums/showthread.php?t=107461

If you want to reconnoiter, This Saturday (1st) 11:30-3:30, Heather Hardy and the Lil' Mama Band is playing. They rock:

Riding in Rio Rico and Nogales areas May 11, 12

Hi All,

Is anyone interested in riding with me on either date?


May 11

I'm planning to ride towards Arivaca. There's an abandoned mine area that I like, so will play there for a couple hours. Then Arivaca for lunch & fuel. Then I'd like to take Ruby Road for a bit, I'll probably head into Warsaw Canyon to California Gulch and do that loop. Depending on time and temperature, we'll either finish up Ruby Road and loop back to staging area on the road or head back the way we came. If you don't know the area, and are on a big bike We'll probably take the 15 min Interstate ride back to wherever we stage. If bikes aren't suitable we can take Pendelton back to where ever we decide to stage. (Staging area to be decided but I have some good ideas, maybe Amado?)

Probably start around 9.

May 12

Haven't decided yet, but am leaning on riding out by Flux Canyon/Harshaw Ghost town area. I found this "sky island" type place up there and I want to see it again. I'll probably head towards Montezumo Canyon. This one is mostly dirt road with some "Hey lets see where this goes" moments. That said, I'm quite interested in riding some new terrain so if you know the area I'm up for seeing some different terrain.

Probably start around the same time, maybe a bit earlier.


I ride a DR650, both rides are two track but the May 12 is more like dirt roads, both days will have some pavement too. You'll need dirt tires and a similar bike for May 11. I have Kenda 270s on my DR. I'm a very experienced rider but the is my first year riding in the desert. Anyone's welcome, we'll ride to the lowest skill level in the group. I don't hesitate to turn around if the trail(s) get too tough for me. You'll need a plated bike.

I'd like to keep the group small-ish, manageable but we can always divide up into smaller groups.


I'm also looking for new areas to ride not too far from there, so feel free to suggest some areas even if you aren't coming along. :)

Chris.

I would love to, but I'm leaving on the 11th, I'll be out of town for a few days. Maybe next time!

Hey Guys,

No problem, divorces are expensive. :)

I forgot about mother's day but I'll be out regardless. I only get two more weekends in the desert before it's back to Canada for the summer.

Assuming I don't break my bike (or myself), I'll be heading out for rides not too far from here May 17/18. I'm going to do some mid-week scouting and mapping, but I'll either be within say 20 miles of Arivaca or somewhere a little further North.

I'll post when I get it figured out.

Chris.
