    Mountain Bike in the Moonlight - McDowell

    McDowell Mountain Regional Park

    This year's summer night ride series is sponsored by the SLIPPERY PIG bike shops in Phoenix and Fountain Hills. This ride will be held on the Competitive Track (Sport/tech/long) loops. The course is not very technical; however, night riding will make it more difficult. Helmets and lights will be mandatory on this ride. Only lights designed for use with mountain bikes with at least a 3 hour power source are acceptable. ALL RIDERS MUST SIGN IN BEFORE THEIR RIDE AND SIGN OUT AFTER THEIR RIDE. NO RIDERS WILL BE ALLOWED TO BEGIN THEIR RIDE AFTER 8:00 PM. Everyone needs to be off the trail by 10:00 PM. This is not a guided ride. Volunteers will sweep the course to ensure all riders return safely. For more information call 480-471-0173.

    Date: 8/27/2010
    Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
    Registration Required: No
    Fee: $6 per vehicle park entry fee

    It will be good to see you out there again. Don't get in an accident trying to get there!

    As long as you start your ride before 8 PM, you are good.

    I'll be heading out there, and if anyone wants to car pool (and save some gas and entry fee) i'll be at the Fry's p_lot on shea (fountain hills) at 6:45'ish.

    i've got 3 extra rails on my rack...but you'll need to clamp the downtube, cuz i've got the old skule yakima lockjaws.

    just pm me if you're interested.
