McDowell Mountain Park - Pemberton Trail

We'll do our favorite cardio ride -   the entire Pemberton Loop.  Approximately 18 miles.

Please arrive early enough to gear up and be ready to ride by 8:30 AM.

My cell[masked] (James)

Fun, fast flowing trails with some whoop-de-doos and twisty turns that will help build your technical skills and give you a great work out.

Difficulty: Not a beginner ride due to duration of ride.

Bring plenty of water, energy gels, and use sunscreen.  HELMETS ARE MANDATORY.

There is a $6.00 park fee, but if you want to meet and carpool into the park, post a message on the "Talk About This Meetup" section of this ride.

    Hey Bill Thanks for the good thoughts! I cleaned it all up when got home and started counting. When I couldn't keep track of how many times I had been through my fingers and toes I gave up and slathered it all with Neosporin. Today I am well on my way to recovery. In fact I am just on my way out to go hiking. Less chance of a cactus jumping out in front of me when I am going slower! LOL
    Thanks for asking.

    Great trails - I really liked doing the uphill then meeting you all and doing the downhill. James and Carole did an excellent job leading again. Hope Bob heals quickly from the run in with the cactus

    One of the best parks in the area. The new trails and rerouting of the Pemberton made it a lot better by avoiding the long sandy service road.

    Dern, dern dern, I really wanted to go but had to take Hubby to the ER for chest pain. He will probably be discharged in the morning.
    Drats, foiled again.

    I ended up riding with Ray Saturday, so I think I'll try to watch the Cardinal game! Have a great ride!
