Great Day

Thanks to everyone for another great ride. I have to say while not too bad the last stretch heading up to Mt Lemmon as a bit tougher than the last time I went.

Until Next Time
Bill

Thanks to all for a nice day of riding. The twisties were worth the long slab home. I rode a bit down Tanque Verde and explored a bit before turning around and going home. Mike schooled me on down hill carving. He has some skillz!

Ok a few more....start with a nice meal at the Queen Creek Cafe.....

Our motley crew...Paul, Julio. Lauren, Kathy, bill......
Wade rolled in right @10 not having gone to San Diego for a DR and a copy of the the title

In Florence we all noticed the wind had kicked up quite a bit....this was kinda ok as it cleared the dust on Willow Springs road
enough to make it bareable most of the time...here we stop at the end of Willow Springs and 77...


I think this is on Mt.Lemmon road...I actually prefered the rockier, rutted road to the floaty sand like Willow Springs...next time I might air down some

View from 8000 feet....still evidence of the fires....


Valley view from the heli-pad...

Paul and I opted for the General Hitchcock highway route down to Tucson...this was 29 mles of super scenic twisties...
my method of tailgating cars with my high beam usually made them pull over so we could continue our blitz down the mountain



Thanks again everybody !

Well then you're gonna love this little offshoot trail I found yesterday. It's only a bit over 8 miles but it's a workout.


View Larger Map

I had it marked on my GPS but since we were moving fast on the way up I didn't want to stop everyone to ask if you wanted to try it. On the way down I got ahead of Bill and Paul and took it for a little bit to check it out and it's a lot more challenging than Mt Lemmon road is.

While exploring one of these side trails I came upon this one that shot straight up into the sky. Here's a pic of me 3/4 of the way up it where I decided it was a bad idea to try and continue on by myself.



That sucker was steep!

I stopped and waited for Bill and Loren and snapped these pics from where I was.





Two more straggler pics of the day.



The 79 home always sucks.



I need to mount some auxiliary lighting for these trips because riding home at night with my st00pid little flashlight of a headlight is downright dangerous.

I guess I was in the wrong spot this morning? I'm new to dirt riding and wanting to meet up with others.

The Sunday meeting is at Tatum and Bell in parking lot with the Starbucks and Dunkin donuts at 9:00am?

When's the next one?

Bill, when is the next one and where too?

I would check with the other crew on the other thread but they don't meet up any more, they don't ride and their thread turned in to the Food Channel thread. They are all fisherman............

Brad,

I have not really thought about the next ride. Do you have any suggestions that would be good for you and all the good guys on the west side that wouldn't be too difficult for riders like myself?

Bill
