    Anthem trails group rides?

    Would anyone be down for some MTBR group riders at Anthem trails?
    Sunday mornings woul be ideal for me. Just 2 hours long at most due to the summer heat. Looking for social/casual ride. NOT a hammer fest.

    Torn between the thought of doing a 3 hour or so road or mtb ride tomorrow. But, I'll do some Anthem-MHT stuff if you want ride them.

    I'll just be taking off from my house about 7am and riding the AET south to north and can meet you at Anthem Hills Park.

    From there, thinking maybe the park out through all that is finished of the MHT, then back to Bursage and out to the south side trail, then back through the AET and up the hill to Bursage and do the fingers/bird/phoenix loop, then back around down coyote and back up the wash trail, then out Bursage and down the canyon trail to the road and back to the AET and back to the Park. After that, I'll just be taking the roads back to the house.

    3+ for me and should be a little over 2 for you. Start about 7:30 at the park?

    Hopefully the newer trials got packed down from the rains last week!

    Anyone else interested?

    Went to bed early last Saturday and didn't see your post until after I woke up on Sunday. Figured it would just end up being a solo ride, so I opted for the half-century road option.

    But, getting the long road ride out of the way Saturday morning this week.

    So, is there going to be an early morning trail ride at Anthem this Sunday?

    Does Las Vegas Ban Overnight Parking, and Overnight Mountain Biking

    You will note my posting history and see that Reno, Scottsdale, and Palm Springs all BAN ALL AFTER HOURS hiking and mountain biking. Cars parked at trailheads after dark might be cited (I sure hope not !), and Overnight Parking is banned in Wallmarts, shopping centers, and even some casinoes.

    This is serious issue for me, since my days can run very late. In the winter, sometimes I don't have time to start riding until after dark, even as late as 6pm.

    Glad to see that night rides are allowed in Anthem, which is an HOA. How about night rides in OTHER areas of Vegas such as Bootleg, and out near Blue Diamond?

    What about riding the River Mountains / Henderson / Boulder City / Boulder Beach paved loop at night? Under the moon, that trail along Lake Meade would be spectacular.

    Your input is appreciated. Different areas of the US have different rules for various reasons. Thank you.

    In Anthem we park by field 1 at the park. No issues,we had a cop pull up the other nite, he didn't even stop. Just turned around and left.

    Bootleg and Cowboy are the only places that have any signs reguarding nites, and they only say " No Overnight Camping "
    So I would say there are no restrictions against nite riding.

    We have weekly nite rides every Thurs nite. This week we are riding at BBT. Park at RC Wileys, Flamingo&Town Center. Lift off at 730pm.
    Your welcome to join us.


    Edit: just saw your other post saying your in Reno.
    If you get down south hit me up here and I 'll show ya some trails.

    Technically, unlit trails in the City of Henderson are open from dawn to dusk (lit trails are open 0500 to 2300). Anthem East is a COH trail. I have been on the RMT many times outside of those hours. In my opinion, they would only enforce it if they had a complaint or you were causing problems.

    $700 Ticket for Overnight Parking in Cave Creek Regional Park Arizona

    Thanks for the info ... In my case, I would take no chances. I was causing absolutely NO problems when issued a $700 fine when visiting Cave Creek Regional Park near Phoenix for overnight parking. Fortunately, I got this fine dismissed, with the help of the county prosecutor in my home state 1600 miles away. If it was NOT dismissed, I would have been given a Class 1 Misdemeanor, and never be able to rent an apartment or get a real estate license.

    I can find no place in the Southwest that does not ban overnight parking and camping after dusk. I need a place that encourages physical fitness, rather than discouraging it, through arbitrary rules that are enforced on a case by case basis, pursuant to whether or not an officer "happens to show up."

    In contrast, the Ashland, Oregon and Bend, Oregon Parks Departments email me stating that park hours are until 11pm (Lithia Park), and 10pm, respectively, year round

    Thanks for the information, and for the winter, I'll look for cities that have more flexible parking and biking policies after dark. The rules, in general, in the Southwest, are too tough. Reno, Washoe County, and Henderson should relax their rules and attract more riders. Same thing in Scottsdale, Cave Creek, and Palm Springs.

    And, "No Overnight Camping" is essentially a translation for "No Overnight Parking," including parking after dark ! Be careful !

    The only places you can't park overnight is where it's posted "No Overnite camping"

    I night ride 1-2x a week 4 months of the year. NEVER had or heard of anyone having any issues.

    It really is a NON-ISSUE here. YMMV
