Notes: Stock up on greasy spoon and then head to the land of guns and 4-wheelers (by-passing both). We will get in the dirt but nothing too tough (unlessen y'all want to). I am going to ride the new to me 640 Adventure just to test how adventurous it wants to be. Might go down to Castle Rock, who knows.
Good luck on the new bike.

White Mountains Ride and Camp

The heat is getting to me and I've saved up enough vacation to take some time off so it is time to ride to some cool country and camp.

Ride Name: White Mountains Ride and Camp
Date: Starting 9/2 through 9/12
Meeting time: When you get there
Meeting location: KP Cienega (State route 191 just south of Hannigans Meadow)
Difficulty: You can make it what you wish
Notes: From Tucson it is just about equal distance from the south approach through Safford/Morenci or the north approach through Globe. About 5 hours either way. If you have taken 191 you have passed about 1 mile from the camp. KP Cienega is a small campsite of about 6 spots. Vault toilet. Incredible view. Lots of wood in the area had plenty of cut up logs and downed trees nearby. Small stream nearby with a great hike in the area to some waterfalls if your legs are up to it. Plenty of forest roads to explore. Running water available at Hannigan Campsite about 3 miles away. Showers reportedly available at Hannigan Meadow.

I may move down slope to another campsite that I've heard about called Blue. Reportedly sits at a lower elevation next to the Blue river. 28 mile dirt road access if I recall.

Here are some weather info sites. Zoom in and click on the satellite for a view of the area.

Ride Name: Arivaca, the easy way.
Date: Sunday, Aug 29th
Meeting time: Stands up @ 8am
Meeting location: Shell station @ Ajo and Tucson Estates Parkway (1 mile W of Kinney RD)
Estimated Length of Ride: 2 - 3 hours, one way
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate on a big bike

Ride Name: Santa Ritas Exploration
Date: Sunday Sept. 5
Meeting time: 0700
Meeting location: Wilmot & Sahuarita at the gate
Estimated Length of Ride: All day. Early exits not a problem. Breaks in the shade when available.
Difficulty: Intermediate to hard
Notes: Bring lots of water. We'll wait for slow people; noobs won't cut it. Planning on hanging out at the sawmill trail head for a while when we get there. Curvy steep trails in areas. The terrain is all screwed up from the weather. Holiday weekend probably means more people out riding.

Anyone that wants to sleep at my house Saturday night is welcome.

MEETING TIME UPDATED. 7AM.

WE WILL GET GAS IN SONOITA
at some point.

Ride Name: Willcox to Alpine overnighter
Darte:Sept 18
Meeting Time:0800
Meeting Location: My house in Willcox. (PM for directions)
Estimated Length of Ride: About four hours each way plus an overnight camp.
Difficulty: Easy
Notes: email kdap@netzero.net subject line "ride rsvp" for directions as I am posting this ride in several locations. The route will have a lot of pavement but will be scenic and interesting. I have replaced as much of the boring sections as possible with either dirt or more interesting slab. The pace will be medium to slow. There will be plenty of stops, so feel free to stop and take pictures without fear of being left behind. All riders should be completely self sufficient. Bring all your own food and drinks. We will have a support vehicle with several coolers to transport food and drinks only but nothing will be provided. Please label anything going in the coolers. Other than that, if it doesn't fit on your bike, it doesn't go.

Ride Name: Sonoita and more
Date:09/26
Meeting time:08:00
Meeting location:The Road Runner Gas station @ Houghton and Sahurita rd
Estimated Length of Ride:All Day
Difficulty:Easy
Notes: Relatively easy trails, laid back pace. We're exploring the dirt roads south of the Shell Station to get to Montezuma Pass. Likely visit with Becky's parents down there. People can come and split halfway through the ride if they don't want to ride all day. Time permitting, ride through box canyon, then across to the mine road and down to the Wilmot gate to finish off the ride.
