Sometimes a well planned trip on some easy big bike trails just doesn't go quite like you think it will.... The plans were layed months ago to do a two day loop into Southern Arizona from Phoenix with a night in Patagonia. An email was sent out to all the very capable riders and 10 hands went up for the ride and one very generous offer of a chase truck with two inside.

I will begin with stating a few highlights and then let the posting begin... Just over an hour into the ride the Chase truck was stopped by three law enforcement vehicles.... There could have been some sand on this ride... Tire issues started early and would be the constant for the two days... There could be some rocks on this ride..... The border patrol would be asked by the reservation police to detain the bike riders with the chase truck.... By 6 O'clock the ride leader had not one rider still with him on the trail... Everyone would make it to Patagonia all be it late... Hotel manager would have to ask the group to be quite.... 10.30 am day two the first rider gives up and heads home... More tire issues.... There could be some hills on this ride.... More riders bailing.... By 3pm the ride leader would have one one rider left with him to complete day two.... One thing I know about this ride is everyone on it has a story or two at least to share. Pictures should be plentiful and I will long remember this one... Big thanks go out to YBRacing for the gps tracks. AZRedline for the scouting days we did. MilT and Ghost for the chase truck support and any repairs that will be needed. To all in the group that made this one to remember Cheers mates.... that was a bloody ripper.
