    Anyone riding in Phoenix this Saturday afternoon?

    I usually always ride in the mornings, but the wife made plans for this weekends mornings, and my chance to ride is this afternoon. Just curious where people will be this afternoon. I plan on being on a trail around 4:30 and not sure which trail. Curious where people will be, maybe I'll run in to someone?

    Based on my experience you will likely be alone...

    If it's still too hot to ride in the afternoon (never was, really), some of you need to move.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    i'm going to go for my first 3-days-in-a-row out at hawes for the first time since april. I want to include an NRA out-n-back so i need to start by 3.
    i just dumped 3oz stans in each tire, so bring on the cholla so as long as my tire doesn't fling them into my balls

    I was thinking of taking a quick burn or around at Deem around 3, 3:30 if you're in the northern neck of the woods...

    I was actually thinking deems, as I've never been. But I really can't get there until 4:00 to 4:30 since wife is currently working. Also don't know how to get there. I'm in Waddell, south of Surprise. May be my best option, so if you see a brown Enduro and a green jersey, that's me. Time to search the forum for Deems info. Otherwise I may just do SOMO DC telegraph national loop. We shall see

    Cholla balls and man balls is a terrible combo. That's a fun trail to live near. Wish I was closer.

    Nice, Deems is fun if you've never been. Just know that it won't be as interesting as Tele/National and you'll have enough travel left over to take a trip to China if you ride it on an Enduro. But, if you're up for an XC ride it's a good one.

    Best way to get there is go up 101, exit 59th Ave and go north (left), east (right) on Pinnacle Peak Rd, north (left) on 51st Ave, east (right) at the stop sign on Deem Hills Pkwy, right into the park. Trailhead is at the back of the parking lot. Outer loop is like 6 miles. I find riding counter clockwise more enjoyable.

    I'll probably get there between 3:30 and 4. Grayish Rumblefish, green jersey.

    Only saw 6 out there this afternoon. Just got back.

    Sunday afternoons are also not popular for some reason. Sunday mornings are a traffic jam...
