Friday Night Sabino Stroll

Come join us for our weekly hike and socializing afterward at Risky Business! This is a great hike for new members. We normally walk up the tram road and enjoy the evening views of the canyon. Most folks turn around after 2 miles, but some hardy folks go the entire 7.4 miles to the end of the tram road and back. Everyone walks at a different pace, and so normally we break up into smaller groups as we are walking.  When we get to the 2 mile rock we usually regroup before returning to the visitor center. The group that leaves at 7pm walks a little faster than 2 miles per hour. The group that leaves at 6 walks even faster, nearly 4 miles per hour. Please consider these speeds and your abilities when deciding to join us. If you cannot keep up, be prepared to hike by yourself.

We are hiking in the dark, so please make sure you have a good flashlight. The rattlesnakes are out.   

We'll meet at the ramada (covered patio) in front of the Sabino Canyon Visitor's Center at 7 PM, do a quick round of introductions and start hiking shortly thereafter.

Those wishing to walk the entire road should start with the 6:00 PM group if you intend to join the later starters at Risky Business (Kolb/Sunrise).   Please indicate on your RSVP if you will be joining the 6:00PM group.

Stroll at your own risk. Be prepared for possible rain.

If no host is present at the appointed time (+5 Mins), begin the stroll anyway.

See you there!

    The secret is to remember that it is an "up and back" event, so if you drop behind, just do your own stroll ... some of my best sightings were when I was left behind or intentionally dropped back ... and remember two things: 1) the group will come back by you when they come down, and 2) if you want, just turn around, go to Risky Business and eventually you can reconnect with the social event when the others get there. :-) (The voice of experience, really.)

    I'm a bit confused, a Friday night stroll turned into a group of People I couldn't keep up with?

    The stars were spectacular. Next Friday, if the moon doesn't interfere too much, we may see the beginning of the Geminid meteor shower.

    Small, but engaging, 6PM group. Nice stars. A tad smokey in the first mile.

    Brrr... But still very beautiful. So many stars and just enough moon to see by.

      Some dumb fool underestimated the cold and had to turn around after less than a mile... ;)

    I attended my first Sabino Friday Stroll by moonlight and it was lots of fun. I will be unable to attend this one due to pre-planned travel to NYC. I hope to be able to attend the next one and meet more members.Have a great time for those going to the one on Dec. 6th.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
