    Summer Night Rides

    I think I may have posted something along these lines last summer but, oh well, I'll try again.

    Anyone here do regular night rides during the summer? I'm in the East Valley, somewhat close to South Mountain. I'd like to hook up with a group that rides at night on somewhat of a regular basis. I know I can't be the only mountain biker around here that isn't a morning person!

    There's an almost weekly Thursday Night Ride, but it happens on the West-Side -- in Estrella Mtn. Ranch. The drive is probably 45+ min. for ya'.

    Says you Harve, I wish you would change it up to a Friday or Saturday night some time then I could join you.
    I do my night rides at the Phoenix Mountain Preserves almost nightly now that the weather is warm enough. Problem is I go riding after work and most people can't or won't ride with me at midnight and finish around 2am.
    If you want come on by and ride with me, I start at the far west end near Shaw Butte Mountain, when I'm back to healthy shape again I will try to beat Randy's TT time up that sucker on my SS but with an easier gear than last time i tried.

    A few of us are planning on taking our weekly Wednesday Night Night Ride at SoMo this wednesday from Pima at 7:30 and head up National. The lot closes at 7pm, so we've got a line on some coorporate parking off of Piedmont.... Feel free to join.

    As far as east valley night rides, we've been hitting it every Wed now that the weather is hot and we're east valley based. Its SoMo this wed, but we've gone to San Tan and Gold Canyon a few times too. I'm sure Hawes is coming up on the list, and we've chatted about a little PMP, even though it is more centrally located. If anyone is interested and you're on FB, send me a PM and I'll get you in the event group so you can follow along and join in. The more the merrier! I'll try and post here too, but my social media time is waning these days as my job actually requires me to work now.....
    Today's the day I eat bikes.

    My friend has been doing this ride for the last few weeks and has had a good time with the group. I might try and get on this one tomorrow night too. Rode PMP last night after work and had a great ride! Once the sun drops behind the mountains, it is awesome!
