Who's up for some Goat Campin deluxe fun-o-rama? CactusJoe is in and I'm pretty sure PaulB and maybe even a little CoyoteKis (both GC virgins) will show. This can be done as a loop with the gnar 3-mile DH (bring armor - I have some spare for you to borrow Ms. Coyote), or it can be done as an out-and-back XC. Both are great rides.

FIP @ 10AM

Directions from I-10... head west, way way west of Phoenix. Exit at 303 and head north. After about 7 miles turn left on Olive. It's $6 to enter the park so bring cash. Take the first left after the entrance and park near the first resthouse.

Post up if you plan to join...

Krein and Mikesee??? Bring those Lenz's on up from Tucson and join us!

Here's the video I made from my last run on Goat Camp to wet your GC appetite. Ironically, it was on Nov 22 and Monday's ride is on Dec 22.

You'll be fine!!! I'm riding Alta/Bajada or some SoMo variation on Sunday so we can limp up the long climb to Goat Camp together on Monday.

MikeSee bait????

DG,

You really. really want to ride with Mikesee don't you? GC should be right up his alley from what I can tell.

How long is the commute on a Monday morning do you think, from the Tukster? I am guessing close to an hour assuming some light commuting traffic.

Yea, it'll be about an hour's drive from Ahwatukee on a light-traffic Monday.

I'm thinking you have a cold coming on.... do you feel it? Everyone's been sick. You definitely need Monday off to rest and relax on Goat Camp.

If unemployed Jeffro comes he can show me the way to the mesquite connector. Sounds like a good plan.

Well dayum! I said DAYUM! Armor? :idea: I'm thinking anything that requires armor is beyond my wee-puppy coyote skills. Jury is out on this one. Hmm. Let me see if I can get a hall pass... and if so, I'm thinking I just need to bring the pom poms to cheer on you crazy cake kids as you take on the downhill. Awfully kind of you to offer your armor, Kathleen. :cornut: Thank you. I'll let you or CactusJoe know if I can pull this off.

Well duh, I guess I'll be there. The big bike is feeling neglected, riding with all these fitness masochists lately. :D

I think it's time to feel the danger again. I'm getting all worked up now. Must bottle it and save it for monday....

Besides, I've riden the Ti Diva into the ground lately, and I think she needs a break. And a new drivetrain. Or at least an overhaul.

I'll be at your place at about 830-ish. Dibs on shotgun. :cool:

Seriously, just listen to your instincts and you'll be fine. :thumbsup:

That goes for all of you on the fence, by the way. Fear not the Goat Camp. Fear the fear of the Goat Camp. Or something like that. :skep:

And if my instincts tell me this is over my head? heh-heh :prft: Just watched the vid, and ain't enough Cactus Juice in the world to make me take on that terrain.

So does this mean no Tucson visit for the Phx crew?

DG, I sent MC and Krein an email about your thread in case they are not on MTBR tomorrow.
Miligrosa for this Phx crew will be next week, probably on the 29th or the 30th when NewMexJoe and Jim Beam are visiting.

Thanks for passing on the Goat Camp info!

Hey Chadwick--thanks for the e'd headsup--we woulda missed this for sure.

And since you were kind enough to let us know about this here e-vent, we feel obliged to return the favor by pickin' you up at oh-seven-hundred on Monday AM to head out there with us.

The only remaining question to answer is whether you're making us breakfast or buying it en route? ;)

And DG--thanks for the invite--looking forward to the gnar tech chunk challenge...

MC
