This ride is for those riding to the ride start for the Sonoita Bisbee Overnight supported ride.

Many of us are staying at Xanadu Ranch, some are staying at Dwayne’s house (see Pot Luck Post) and others may select another place in Sonoita. Most of us will attend the GABA pre ride potluck held Friday evening.

Please arrange to leave your bag at Steve’s house prior to leaving on Friday and Barb will transport them to Sonoita in our van.

Please send Steve your direct email and phone so that we can connect and discuss logistics & lodging arrangements. [masked]
