    Since we're now full, we can start focusing on the fun part...riding, places to go, routes, tracks and group rides.

    More importantly, please read below what is expected from each participant.


    Rider Tips, Bike Set Up, Safe Riding

    1. Know your abilities and comfort level of riding. There will be a variety of terrain and road condition. Rocks, ruts and sand are part of just about every non-paved road/track. Research the area, find the places you want to see, talk to other riders.

    2. Proper bike set up for riding DV is important. If you are joining a ride with a designated ride leader and sweep, the leader and or sweep may find your bike unsuitable, and if they are not comfortable with your set up, be prepared to not be part of their ride.

    Here are some pretty basic things to address:

    - Your bike is in good running condition, The desert is the wrong place to bring a bike that may or may not get you back to camp.

    - Lay your bike on the ground and be sure you can pick it up on your own.

    - Tires in good condition; whether you are riding all pavement or the most difficult trails. Knobbies are highly recommended.

    - Know your bike’s fuel range.

    - Carry the appropriate tools to address potential problems on the trail. Most bikes have specific tool kits related to the bike … always have them. No need to bring the whole tool box from your garage or truck.

    - Carry tire irons, wheel wrench and some kind of pump. Know how to fix a flat tire.

    - Make sure you have a spare tube with you on any ride. Better yet, carry two. Even if you have tubeless tires, a plug is not going to help you if a rock slashes your side wall.

    - Lastly but maybe the most important; get enough rest on the night before the ride.

    - One more thing … LEAVE THE PANNIERS IN CAMP! By the way, in camp, panniers make great ice chests. There are only bad things that can happen when riding off road with “adventure” panniers.

    3. Safe riding is your biggest responsibility while in Pahrump, however here are some basic safe riding points to consider:

    - Try to ride in a group and have a ride plan. If you are going to ride alone, make sure someone in camp is aware of where you are going and when you expect to be back.

    - Follow basic group ride etiquette; maintain safe distance between riders, stop at turns/forks/intersections and make sure rider behind you follows.

    Your ride leader is doing it for the love of the sport; no one gets paid nor you're paying for it. Please respect and listen to your ride leader. Do not leave the group without the ride leader knowing!

    - Always have water and snacks with you at all times.

    - Carry a basic first aid kit

    - Wear proper protective gear and boots. No hiking boots, tees and jeans!


    There are lots of very experienced riders who attend this event and can be very helpful to address all above points. Keep in mind there are lots of opinions and preferences to ALL, so gather the information and advice best suited to you. Have a great time and enjoy the camaraderie.

    gotta experience pahrump and you'll keep on coming back.

    yeah, i noticed you liking it.

    what, you've been inside the ranch?

    how come my phone didn't ring? going rogue?


    :clap

    mike you're already in before you wanted in...:y0!


    you'll like it.

    you're first and not the last.


    awesome joe....let's get em there.

    haha, that and the riding too, plus the desert survival lesson taught by you and tour of the early civilizations...you know the petroglyphs.

    wasn't sure how many will be attending this event; though my guess will be twice as many as last year's.

    i need to buy an event insurance good for 80 participants, regardless you're camping, hotelling or just visiting for the day. if needed, i can always increase the coverage to 100 or so.

    but....please post up if you're interested so i can get an idea how many will be there. not collecting any money until we reached 50 peeps. i will have the IN list here on this post.



    after settling all the expenses and find we have extra money - will donate it to Blue Ribbon Coalition - Southern Nevada Land Use. individual donation is always welcome.

    we can do a b-b-q on saturday night; depends if we find a caterer or enough people to sign up. games and a raffle are also fun. will have more about them later.

    Well I am very interested and can probably talk my brother into coming as well. We'd be riding in from the Santa Cruz area.
