    I don't think there will be a lot of interest. But you never know. Let me know if you want to join me.

    Lots of trail that I have never ridden. Any plans on a start/finish time?

    some time between 830AM and 10AM. I am flexible in this range. Finish time would be about 3-4 hours later.

    Looks like an awesome route. That is a bit outside my range. Not sure I would be able to keep up. But I must admit, I am tempted.

    Here is another similar route, exploring the western side - cave creek side of the Sonoran.

    just don't go south of the dam like we did.... you get to the other side by crossing on the north side of the dam

    Group rides are typically more mellow pace and from the looks of the route there are bail out options. If I go I will not be out front, for sure.

    I'm interested! BUT...
    If you happen to change this to Monday (happens to be my only day off), I'm willing to tag along. Although I may bug out If I can't hang, since that's a lot of miles for me.

    I'm probably going to make it. Any link to directions on the south parking lot. I've only ridden from the north side off Carefree and 7th.

    Two notes of significance. There will be a pit stop at the Cave Creek park nature center. They have drinks and snacks there. Also we will likely stop at the Circle K at 7th st and Carefree.

    So, there is no need to load up on water for this ride. You still should bring water. But you don't have to "load up"

    Thanks ray... I used to do the same thing as a rugby player.. my field name was rajun cajun... I guess that enthusiasm sticks with me... As far as the yelling it helps me clear my lungs... as weird as that sounds..

    Man, my lungs really took a beating on this ride.. I am going to have to do something about my asthma...
