    Night ride at McDowell?

    I thought there was a night ride tonight 7/9 at McDowell but when I check the web site it is not showing. Am I mistaken? Is there a night ride somewhere else? Anyone want to go on a ride tonight? Maybe Gold Canyon. Thanks

    You might PM Marty and verify but I haven't heard about them canceling. Here is the original link.

    We (Baja Designs) are doing a clinic with Slippery Pig Wednesday night this week (July 13th) at the Pemberton Loop at 7:00, there will be a night ride after the clinic. We'll have plenty of demo Baja Designs Strykr's and Strykr Pro's for riders to try out.

    Let me know if you have any questions, we look forward to seeing everyone there.

    Slippery Pig is teaching a basic riding clinic and I will be teaching a night riding clinic. Should be fun.

    I agree, that was a great event! The weather was perfect, it was almost cool-ish and the post-ride Mexican food was fantastic! If you have a chance to get out to one these clinics or the big McDowell Mountain night rides I would highly recommend it.

    Slippery Pig Too bike shop in Fountain Hills now has the brutally tough and bright Baja Designs Strykr and Strykr Pro light systems in stock, swing on by and speak with Doug, he's their resident night riding expert.
