PHX - Sat Dec 15th - Single Track Ride

Meet at the Mile Marker 11.5 Boulders OHV staging area near the pit toilets at 8:00 AM, ready to ride at 8:30 AM.

Expect lots of single track, with some extremely difficult, crazy steep, high altitude off camber sections. If you're not a seasoned single track veteran, this isn't the ride for you.

Lunch at the Wild Horse Saloon afterwards.

o.k.

I mean why not, everything is extremely steep n crazy difficult on a klr. And off camber --- the klr "is" of camber ., ,

just kidden - have fun. the husky is almost resesitated. when you say seasoned veteran single track, is that age related

I'm interested. Can I get some details? I googled boulders, it said one mile north of the highway at milepost 11.5 is that where you'll be?
How high altitude are we talking?
What kind of mileage or fuel range is likely?
Is it all trail or are there road miles involved?

the details are in the ride.
like he said,.....if you are a seasoned veteran.......
show up with everything topped off, an opern mind,
and you'll have a ball.
don't worry about the alt.
these guys will treat you right.
have fun.............

Eternal single track noob, I'll never be a veteran at my current pace

That is the Boulders OHV where we stage at. There is a sign on the gravel road once you have turned off Hwy 74.

Please check this thread before leaving your home Saturday morning for cancellation information.

If the forecast looks bad, the ride will be cancelled. I hate riding in the rain. I hate riding in the cold. I really hate riding in the rain and cold!

I will post up either way between 6:00 and 6:15 AM.
