Global Bikes Hump Day Haulin Dirt @ SoMo – Early Morning MTB Ride @ Ahwatukee
Oct 17 @ 5:15 am

This is a weekly early morning (before the birds and the rest of Arizona wake up) MTB ride! Meetup with Kevin L. (and/or Pete P.) at our Ahwatukee Shop (Ray Rd. west of 48th -[masked]) and ride to Desert Classic Trail at South Mountain. Wheels down at 5:20am sharp in order to hit Desert Classic at the Warpaint entrance by 5:30. The ride is open to intermediate and advanced skilled riders. The ride will average 15 miles depending on who shows up, who’s been eating their Wheaties, and weekly route. The route will be somewhat fluid, but plan on Desert Classic (east or west) and possibly some of the connectors. We’ll try to keep the group together as much as possible, but we’ll decide on a couple of meeting spots because sometimes you get caught up daydreaming about rearranging your sock drawer and other times you want to ride like Tinker. The goal is to be back to the shop around 7:00am, because I know you are all anxious to rush off to work. During the non-summer months, adequate lighting is a must!!! I recommend a light on your brain bucket and a light on your bars (both 500 lumens or more). The faster you ride the more light you need! This is a ride at your own risk event.

Oct 17 @ 6:00 pm

Meet under the street light by 6:50

Welcome to the San Tan Bikes sponsored “Night Shredders” ! If you’re looking for an adventure where your trail riding abilities will be challenged, then look no further than the Night Shredders. When you’re on a bike on the trail at night, every bump, dip and shadow gives an extra pop of adrenaline. Darkness heightens your senses, sharpens your skills and makes you feel more alive. And isn’t that why you bike in the first place? Our policy, “No Rider Left Behind,” means we ride together in a group for safety reasons. It is mandatory to wear a helmet and please bring plenty of water, an extra tube and tools to change a flat tire, and 2 sources of light; LED rechargeable lights with at least 650 lumen. Why? The desert gets very dark at night. Riders under 18-years of age must complete a Parental Consent form. Hope to see you on the trail soon. Meet at the Flag Pole.
