    Mountain Bike in the Moonlight - Sat, 8/8/09

    Another MMP night ride is this Saturday. Who is in?

    If you go, please remember to sign in and sign out.

    Mountain Bike in the Moonlight - McDowell http://www.maricopa.gov/parks/mcdowe...x?EventID=2352

    McDowell Mountain Regional Park
    The award winning Mountain Bike by the Moon Light is a night time ride on the Pemberton Trail (15.4 miles). The Pemberton Trail is not very technical; however, night riding will make it more difficult. Helmets and lights will be mandatory on this ride. Only lights designed for use with mountain bikes with at least a 3 hour power source are acceptable. All riders must sign in and out at the trailhead as they start and finish their ride. Everyone needs to be off the trail by 9:30 PM. This is not a guided ride. Volunteers will sweep the course to ensure all riders return safely. For more information call 480-471-0173.

    Date: 8/8/2009
    Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
    Registration Required: No
    Fee: $6 per vehicle park entry fee

    Contact: Rand Hubbell, Park Supervisor 480-471-0173
    Location: McDowell Mountain Regional Park

    We are going to be down in the Valley for the weekend and this sounds like a fun ride. Do you have to start right at 7:30 or can you start a little later?

    It is not a mass start event and riders start when they are ready to go. The park asks that everyone try and be back by 9:30 PM.

    Just be sure to sign in and out at the trail head and have fun!

    I rode part of it yesterday and there were only a few spots that you could see some left over tire tracks from the rain. This weekend's ride should help work out some of the kinks.
