    Pemberton Night Ride AND Campout

    Yes that is correct.

    Last Saturday we had 148 people on the Pemberton night ride and the park told us if we can raise the money to pay for Kachina Rescue to be present we can have a night ride Saturday Sept 26, Then camp in the parking lot and ride again the next morning.

    Global Bikes and Cycle Out have already contributed to the fund and I expect to have the rest of the money we need committed to today.

    We are working on doing this again in October and Slippery Pig has already made a donation towards that event but we will need to raise a little more before it is a go.

    So that is the scoop

    Night ride/Campout @ Pemberton
    Saturday Sept 26, 2009

    Bring your tent or sleep in your truck and ride again in the morning.
    There are restrooms and showers in the parking lot

    For those intrested there is a trail maintenance day Sept 26 from 8-12 at the comp loops in McDowell.

    Come to the ride and dont forget to thank the local bike shops that have put up the cash to make this event happen for us.

    Come as a normal night ride or camp and ride in the morning, Either way is $6 to enter the park.

    Spread the word, lets see if we can break the 148 person record this Saturday night.

    One More Time - Mountain Bike by the Moon Light

    McDowell Mountain Regional Park
    Back by request, some of the regulars have asked for one more ride and allow thoses interested to camp overnight and ride Sunday morning. So, that award winning Mountain Bike by the Moon Light will again be offered 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: 9/26/2009
    Time: 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM Duration: 2 hours
    Registration Required: No
    Fee: Included with entry fee to the park

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

    Address:
    16,300 N. McDowell Park Drive
    Scottsdale, AZ 85255
