    WHEN> September 24th, 25th, 26th, 2010
    The Saturday Loop Ride start time is 9:00am Sharp! I set the 9am start time for those that are riding in on Sat. morning and since I have cooks to get the meal going I don't have to get back to camp as early. I will be at the campsite Thrusday afternoon.


    I would like to host a weekend camp-out and ride for anyone that wants to come ride in the Heber area. Camping Friday night and Sat. night with a planned ride on Sat. I will cook bacon and eggs for breakfast Sat. and Sunday mornings and we will grill pork chops for everyone Sat. evening. We will have baked beans, and potatoes with the pork chops.>> I am not providing drinks so BYOB! <<There will be riding on Friday afternoon and Sunday morning somewhere!

    I am planning a big loop for Sat. that will take most of the day and will cover several different terrain types. Big Bike friendly (without luggage) with one canyon crossing that will be a little rocky but, very doable on a big bike. This is not a technical ride but you will enjoy the ride! Pack your Lunch as we will not be near town at mid-day Sat.

    Camp will be near Heber on FR210 for access to services (the Circle K is 3.5 miles from camp). There are a couple Hotels in Heber if you are not a camper.

    Some of the highlights will be Black Canyon, Mogollon Mesa (not FR 300), Aripine, Dry Lake, Buckskin Canyon, Brookbank Canyon, Wildcat Canyon.....

    Just in case someone didn't catch it in one of my post. When I prerun the entire loop I logged 136 miles But, I did do some backtracking while trying to find better routes for you guys. If your not blessed in the tank area and can't make the entire loop. Let me know and we will arrange to have a refueling unit near mid route. This is not a problem and I don't want anyone to back out of this AWESOME weekend just because you have a small..............tank!!:lol3 :lol3 :lol3

    Thanks,

    Hey Redeye,
    I will post up a def. start time soon but, most likely 8 or 8:30am for Sat. I need to run the entire loop to get a better idea as to how much time we will need.

    Hey Eric,
    Nope no problem at all. I will try to find a camp site that is not too far off the tarmac and big enough for RV's.
