We will gather at the Gadsden Hotel in Douglas, AZ ( www.thegadsdenhotel.com ).
The Gadsden Hotel is a full-service hotel - rooms, coffee shop, restaurant and a saloon. Please plan your Douglas adventure and experience with the Gadsden Hotel - all aspects of. The Gadsden Hotel is truly a fantastic property.

We will head down G street and turn EAST (right) on 15th street which transitions to the Geronimo Trail.
Full disclosure - the Geronimo Trail is GRAVEL! The Geronimo Trail is a maintained Cochise County road, however, it is still GRAVEL.
This route will be 'un-supported', therefore, all participants need to be self-reliant. Please plan accordingly.
Please keep an eye on the weather and temps. Temps will be cool-ish.
There is no water availability once we start on the Geronimo Trail. Please plan accordingly.
We will head EAST on the Geronimo Trail towards the John Slaughter Ranch. This will be the first turn around opportunity for those participants - +/- 14 miles from Douglas.
The ride will continue east on the Geronimo Trail towards New Mexico. The longer route will be .... +/- 60 miles round trip.
AS an added incentive for those participants - riders and SAG drivers. All that make the trip to Douglas, AZ and take part in the Apacheria pre-ride on Sunday, 12/10/23 will receive a LIMITED edition Apacheria Gravel Event T-SHIRT. Thank you in advance for your participation.
There will be ONE (1) T-SHIRT per participant. I will have T-SHIRTS at the Gadsden Hotel and will distributed after the participants have 'completed' the Apacheria pre-ride.
If ANY ONE wants to purchase additional Apacheria T-SHIRTS they will be available for purchase at $25.00 per shirt - cash preferably.
The 'value-added' event T-SHIRT is a THANK you to all Apacheria pre-ride event participants.
