    Sunday Cycle No Drop/No Flat Night Ride: Tuesday, Dec. 3

    Feet in pedals at 7 p.m. at the 40th St Trailhead of Phoenix Mt. Preserve. This will be a no drop/no Whiskers of Death ride. We'll poll riders on if they want to end the ride at Aunt Chiledas to share scar stories, or use the extra time to ride more. Route to be determined.

    We wait for everybody, even if they get a flat (or 3).

    I am so slow you would not wait on me even with proper tire pressure.

    Get off the 51 at Shea, go east, Go south on 40th St. It dead ends at the trailhead parking lot.

    But park outside the parking lot. I know they close the in gate around sundown. I can't guarantee they won't lock the out gate as well.

    You won't get locked in (unless something has changed since I worked as a ranger). They have the treadle (spikes) so they can keep the exit gate open. Not sure if the road is signed no parking there?

    It was only 2 flats. It did, however, feel like 5.

    Probably won't know until we get out there. But we're going to make our way towards DD, and possibly to the trail the parallels the 51 on our way to ACs.
