Global Bikes Dirty Thursday @ SoMo - Early Morning MTB Ride
This is a weekly early morning (before the birds and the rest of Arizona wake up) MTB ride! Meetup with Kevin L. and/or Pete P. at our Ahwatukee Shop (Ray Rd. west of 48th -[masked]) and ride to Desert Classic Trail at South Mountain. Wheels down at 5:05am sharp in order to hit Desert Classic at the Warpaint trail head by 5:15. The ride is open to intermediate and advanced skilled riders. The ride will average 15 miles depending on who shows up, who’s been eating their Wheaties, and weekly route. The route will be somewhat fluid, but plan on Desert Classic (east or west) and possibly some of the connectors. We’ll try to keep the group together as much as possible, but we’ll decide on a couple of meeting spots because sometimes you get caught up daydreaming about rearranging your sock drawer and other times you want to ride like Tinker. The goal is to be back to the shop around 6:45am, because I know you are all anxious to rush off to work. During the non-summer months, adequate lighting is a must!!! I recommend a light on your brain bucket and a light on your bars (both 500 lumens or more). The faster you ride the more light you need! This is a ride at your own risk event.
