Ride Name: Death in the Desert V
Date: 10/10/10
Meeting time: Stands up at 0800
Meeting location: Shell station @ Ajo & Tucson Estates Parkway
Estimated Length of Ride: 1/2 day +/-, depending on your return route
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate.
Notes: No one has actually died on this ride -- yet. But, I have not been through since before the monsoon. It used to be big bike friendly (assuming a good rider), but who knows how it is now.

Minimum distance to gas = ~70 miles.

Minimum distance on pavement = the first 20 miles and the last 5 miles on the way to Arivaca. The return trip can be the same, or more pavement/less dirt, depending on your mood.

Pace: I'll be moving at a moderate speed, we'll regroup at the major intersections.



**** edited 10 hours before ride time to accommodate a late arrival. New departure time is 8:00am.

Fun riding practice drills.
Bring your dirt bike, bring some water, bring a snack or lunch and we'll make a little picnic of it too.

This ride is brought to you by all the husbands and boyfriends who tell you to come along on their rides and that they'll wait for you! Pa'lease!
We won't be putting the cart in front of the horse. We're going to have fun perfecting the basics.

I ask that you post up on the link below if you would like to attend.

I need a headcount to see if there is interest enough to actually put this together. So post up please.

Those who are IN

Ride Name: South Wilmont/Santa Ritas
Date:10/9/10
Meeting Time: 7:30 AM
Meeting Location: Very South, dead-end of Wilmont
Ride Length: Appox 3 hours +
Difficulty: Quick pace, but we will wait @ cross roads, not big bike friendly.
This ride will have single track, sand washes, graded roads, and some climbs, if you have not ridden this area it's a fun ride with all types of desert riding conditions. 50+ miles, no gas, no water, weather should be perfecto with starting temps in the low 60's. Phast Phil will be bringing his game so expect some Phast riding and Phast talking. Probably will pass over Gunsite Pass to the East side of the range. Be sure to have your OHV sticker...Fish Cop has been seen every time I have been there in the past 2 months.
