    Phoenix Knollfest

    There seems to be an increased interest in a Knolly gathering in Phoenix this winter. For those that have not been here, we have perfect riding weather this time of year. Does sunny and 65-75 degrees work for you? Oh yeah, we have some pretty good riding too!

    Dirtbag and I are always here, tell me when you guys want to show up and we will make it happen. I can probably host a few people at my house and we can create a nice ride schedule.

    For those who are serious about coming in, let's set something up.

    I think they call this "chunk"

    Knolly Arizona Chunkfest!

    Checking with my trip scheduling coordinator as we speak.

    It would be fun to get together with you and Dirtbag again and meet some of the other Knomers. Maybe Dusty could even make his way over with some demos for the potential knolly customers to check out?

    I am down. Awesome. I dont mind crashing at a nearby hotel / whatever...but wont turn down the offer of a place to crash. My calendar is pretty messed up at the moment..and the minute i organize something...work will screw me around. Are you totally flexible?

    Anytime after thx giving is probably best for me.

    Three days of riding (Fri - Sun) Fly out Sunday evening?
    I would try fly in Thu to get built up for Friday morning.

    11/29 - 12/2

    Great idea.

    Not too long of a drive from Burque. And I know it doesn't help, but I have no scheduling conflicts
    I can go whenever.

    Guys,

    I am open, so throw out some dates. I think I can host a few people and certainly make arrangements to pickup and provide transport for those that may be flying in.

    Once we get some dates that work we can widdle them down to something that hopefully works for everyone. This would be a total trip!

    BTW, there will be no XC sissy rides, they will be Endo/Chili approved rides.

    Here are some thoughts on routes:

    Goat Camp (this is a MUST) - superchunk
    National/Holbert/Kiwanis/National - a bit of everything
    National/Cochise - interesting switchbacks
    National/Viejo - steep and loose
    National/Old Lady Ames - 7 of the toughest switchbacks you will ever ride
    Alta - Swtchbacks "Doom", "Death", and "Destruction"
    Kiwanis/National West - Phoenix "XC", still a kick in the pants

    If by shuttling you mean pedaling, then yes, there will be plenty

    OK. Lets set a window...by when the date is decided (Sunday night? - no need to screw around)

    If you're interested - chime in if either of these dates are better / worse

    Doesnt take too many folks to have a party on the trails.

    I could make this happen. Keep posting details. Would like to know the date and the housing arrangements ASAP. Either of those dates would work. Checking airfare from Boston as I type this...

    Is it National that has the campgrounds? I heard that it is a nice campground with showers.

    Both of Muttonchops weekends work for me. There are at least three more Knomers in ABQ, would be nice to carpool

    Free, especially if you have something on your bike I want . Seriously, I could have your bike built and ready to go if you send it my way.

    No camping at National, you can camp at USERY which is way out west, or at the White tanks I believe. If you stay at the White tanks you can shower at my place, it isn't too far away (about 15 minutes)

    Wow, that is a great rate. You are welcome to stay at my place. Depending on how many people show, we may need to setup some air matresses.

    Awesome! Thanks for the proposed hospitality. Gotta talk to the boss to see if I can get the thumbs up. Trails look chunky and mean. I like that!

    Is it more painful to fall and land on those gnarly rocks OR a cactus?
