    Is it just too hot to shuttle Globe

    over the 4th weekend?

    I know it will be hot at the bottom, but what about the top and in the middle?

    Doug,

    I think you could take a relatively safe swing at that ride IF you got picked up on IHC Road (that one we bailed onto last time) or at IH CCC campsite. But I would not wear full-face or armor in that weather. If you have a lighter bike and the patience to ride carefully, you'll be a happier camper.

    p.
    Don't be that guy! Read the forum guidelines.

    ok, top is going to be 75-80 degrees probably in the heat of the day, that's what it's been at 7000 feet the last few days around here.

    So figure 4.4 degrees F lapse rate per thousand feet, that means at 3000 feet the temp could easily be around 100 considering the lesser vegetation of lower elevations, and remember that there are few ways off that mountain, if any, that don't require climbing.

    I'm sure one could easily get a run in during the morning that wouldn't be too bad, but the next one would be during the middle of the day for sure.

    Ok, thanks

    In retrospect, I could ride most of Six Shooter on my enduro with an XC helmet, however there were a few creek crossings that 'to me' looked a little rough on any bike and my wife wasn't too fond of the 'exposure' section of the trail, so

    I'm think it's time to drive to flag . . . sunset or something . . .

    Just due to how much cooler those places are, you'll have a lot more fun and enjoyment.

    SunSET, sunset . . .

    Yes, I know SunRISE is closed to bikes for the 4th weekend due to an Archery event . . .

    (native americans and bow - and - arrows, who knew?)

    Sunset is a trail in Flagstaff . . .

    Thanks for the tip though
