Southwest Dual Sport Riders (Club), has planned a ride for Sunday December 14th, 2008.
The route will take us through Cordes, Mayer, Cherry, Jerome, Perkinsville, Parks, Bellemont and into Flagstaff. The ride will begin at the Waffle House I-17 & Bell Rd and we will depart that location at 7:30 am.
This will be an all day ride, so please be prepared. We will have a chase vehicle that will meet us at pre-arranged locations. The chase vehicle will be equipped with emergency fuel, water, snacks and tools.
However, please prepare yourself for the ride by carrying with you the following suggested items: Spare front and rear tire tubes, an assortment of nuts and bolts, fuses for your bike and any tools specific to your ride which may not be carried by other riders, water and snacks in case of breakdown. Also, it is highly recommended that you wear proper protective gear for this ride.
The planned route contains portions that are rated at levels 1 & 2 for difficulty (for those of you who have ridden Bloody Basin front side, that route is rated level 1, while Senator Hwy is rated level 2), so it will be a good ride for those wishing to increase their skills.
The Ride route is subject to modification as needed due road closures and weather. Ride is subject to cancellation if weather does not cooperate.
I will be bringing radios for comm. between the lead rider, tail rider (I usually ride tail) and the chase vehicle.
Ride Leader (Eddy) and I both have GPS units with the ride route loaded.
