2014 Annual Coke Ovens Ride

November 29th.

Stage at the Superior HS next to the tennis courts & leave the parking lot at 8:30.
Lunch at Los Hermanos afterwards.
Approximately 55 mile loop.

-----------------------------------

Does this ride need an introduction?

I think maybe this is the 5th year?

Here is a look at a few of the previous years:

2013 Run

2012 Run

2010 Run

Let's do it. Who is with me?

Disclaimer: It's a tough ride so...ride your own ride, be prepared, whiners will be roosted, etc, etc....





Copy/pasted from last year's ride but it still applies:

If you have not been before, read the details in the previous years threads before committing. The ride should be 5-6 hours. This is a very rocky, remote but very scenic ride. This not a beginner ride, deep sand, lots of rocks & there may be a surprise or two that could make the normal hard spots seem easy ;)
Expect a flat & be prepared with the skill & parts to fix your own. Bring plenty of water & snacks.
Please come prepared with a well prepared bike & riding gear. Everything back here is pointed, hard or both. The guys that do this ride evey year are a pretty talented lot & will be moving at a brisk pace & the rocks don't let up until we're back on the road.
I've ridden it in under 3 hrs, but it's also taken more than 7hrs to get a group through.

My guess is they use the increasingly-hard-to-find glass bottles.

They are kilns.

It is believed that the kilns were built by the Pinal Consolidated Copper Company in 1882 to supply their smelter furnace with charcoal.

I figured it was a typo since you couldn't figure out were to place the thread correctly.

Did you set your clock right?

Atta boy Dos!

One of my favorite rides, but Thanksgiving is my only good window to see my family this year so I'm out. Have fun, ride safe.
