    Hawes / Pass Mtn loop - Sat 11/15 NOON

    Meet at NOON on Saturday 11/15 (note date and time change) behind the Walgreen's on Power and Thomas (see old map from AZSF07 - Red Mtn 202 now extends all the way down to the Santan 202).

    Plan is to ride the usual Hawes area trails in a counterclockwise fashion to Twisted Sister then out to the NRA pit. We'll take a right up Ellsworth road then left up a dirt wash to hook up to Pass Mtn trail then around the mtn to the horse trailer lot. From here we'll head out the park, across Ellsworth, and up the closed paved road that goes under the big white PHOENIX sign to the towers. Final bit will be the fast drop down Hawes and then a few ups and downs back to the starting point. Route is 27 or 28 miles with many opportunities for bailing out if one needs to shorten the ride.

    Water can be refilled at Usery park after Pass Mtn trail but be sure to start with a minimum of 100oz and even better if you add an extra water bottle. Bring lots of food/snacks.

    Special guest Impy can't make it but we'll still need to hustle to beat the dark. I hope to hit the Hawes DH around sunset - should be beautiful!! .

    Here are some links to when we did this ride over the last year:

    Wish I could be there, that was an awesome ride you took me on last year!

    ( Can you believe it's been 11 months since my last post on MTBR? ! ? ! )

    It's good to be back! Have a great ride!

    Oops! I got my days mixed up. I'd really like to also attend lil gregg's memorial service on Sunday so will likely cancel Sunday's Hawes/Pass ride. Seems to not be gaining too much attention anyway - are you guys getting tired of my long ass rides?

    Impy... sure you can't do Hawes/Pass on Saturday? Skip the last bit of your conference?? Or, we could start at noon or 1 (and push hard to finish before dark).

    Did y'all decide if this one going to Sun or Sat and at what time? If it's later on on Saturday I might be able to pull myself away to go.

    I'm still waiting on an Impy reply before calling this ride one way or another.
    Sunday is definitely out for me as I will be attending lil gregg's memorial service with a SoMo ride afterwards. Saturday early? Saturday late? Impy????? Can you make a Saturday ride?

    Well, rats. Can't miss that memorial service, though, that's for sure.

    I don't think I can get to phoenix before 3 on saturday. Sunday I have to leave early (on the reoad by 1pm)

    If anyone still wants to do the hawes loop on sunday, let me know. If not I might ride Tucson with some friends instead, before heading out to California.
    Love, Impy

    Thanks for the reply Impy... sure you can't scoot out early on Saturday and meet up for an afternoon ride?

    I'm thinking if we start the ride at noon then we'll be hitting the towers around 5 or so and can bomb down Hawes into a spectacular sunset. Everyone should bring a headlamp (like for camping - not your full Niterider unless you wanna haul it around) in case we get stuck out in the dark. If we do take longer, we can cut it shorter by rolling back on McDowell (boo hiss.... must ride Hawes at sunset!)

    Who's in for a Saturday Hawes/Pass attempt meeting at Walgreen's at noon?

    I've still yet to do the ride to Ellsworth and the loop around and under the sign so I'm def game just need to get the from the wife.

    Dale - you don't need a Pivot - you are a Turner guy! Sleep in a bit and then join us for an epic. Hope to see you tomorrow afternoon!

    I'm in for tomorrow at noon! I'll do my best to hang for the full meal deal but if it gets too gnar then I'll opt for the value meal and git. I've never done Pass Mtn so I'm stoked. +0

    Yes you are correct. I don't need a Pivot, but I want to see what this DW hoopla is all about. The largest Pivot is too small for me anyways. Now when Turner gets their XL RFX out next year, I may retire the Six Pack.....

    If you think of retiring the 6 pack, remember how happy your Stinky is with me

    Have fun on the Hawes loop. I still have not done the full loop. I need to stay close to home and be productive in the afternoon.

    If you hit the sack right now, you have time for 6 or 7 hours of beauty sleep before loading in the car and zipping on over to Phx for the ride tomorrow. Come on.... you know you want to!
