PHX - 2014 Coke Ovens Ride

Time for the after Thanksgiving Coke Ovens Ride!

I think with had 17 rides show this year. Unfortunately, my camera died (I did know it was on its last leg) right after leaving the parking lot. I'll have to defer to the other inmates for pictures.

I thought that the road from Box Canyon to the Coke Ovens was in the worst shape I've seen. BattleAx was if good shape and railed the whole way out!! Super dusty all day and unseasonable warm.

Fun times!

Great ride as always. I cant believe your camera died. You always have great pictures. Maybe someone else will post them up.

Yes, it was a great ride. My camera was left behind so no pics from me on this trip.

I did not ride up to the ovens but Skip did. I counted 7 razors that were parked at the ovens from across the way. Maybe the new land owner was having a get together..........

I know by the time we made it to the staging area we were ready to eat some food. Fun day!

Besides it being the annual COKE OVENS RIDE. It was also BIG-E's 50th B-Day...Happy Birthday Yeti!

Rabbi Zechman blessed the ride and made sure the chips and french fries were kosher after the ride.

The approach to Ajax Mine.

RPage11...giving up on the KTM is back to the classic Honda.



Refokus suffered a "flesh wound" to his newish steed.

The Devils Backbone once again served as a playground...however, I couldn't lure anyone to do the frontside approach.

Fun, Fun, Fun

I don't know about anyone else but I had a good time. There were a few tip overs and a couple of flats. Other than that there were only ROCKS! I forgot about the amount of rocks on that ride. It was good to see all of you again it has been too long. I'm thinking the next adventure after the new year should be the RUG. I'm thinking a small group of no more then 25 should do it. Alright HTM, set it up. BTW i'm out the second weekend of January and the first weekend of February FYI.
On a side note: look at the picture of BIG-E and tell me that baby face looks a day over 35. Happy Birthday Eric.

I know I will sound like a broken record by repeating the same thing over and over again but it is the people that show up to this ride that make it what it is.

It always turns out to be a fantastic day no matter how many flat tires, rocks, lost riders or any other matters that are thrown at us during the ride.

I didn't take my camera and only have a few vids but this one like all the others will go down as one to remember.

Thanks everyone.

Here's a few clips from the day.

What a bunch of fun that was. Got to meet few new people and ride some rocks. What more could a guy ask for?

I got a couple photos from the first half of the ride and none from the second half. I'll get em uploaded today and post em. Also got some video I'll have to spend some time pasting together.

The UNCoke Ovens ride rocks!
