Arizona Rough Road Ride

Patagonia, AZ

Feb 24, 25, 26, 2015

    Explore Southern Arizona, Mountains, Valleys
    and the Desert

Join in for three days of varied riding south of Tucson, Arizona. We will ride in and around the Santa Rita Mountains, thru the San Rafael Valley and dodge cactus and thorny trees in the desert. Roads will be varied, from pavement and good graded gravel, to rocky mining and ranch roads, and some sand and gravel washes too! Riding will be on public roads with some on Arizona State Trust Lands. A Group Permit will be secured for these sections.

Riding will begin each day at 9:30A at the Stage Stop Inn. Pavement and dirt will be around 50/50. Sections difficult for big bikes will have a go-around or alternatives. Street legal Dual Sport motorcycles are required for these roads. Displacement of 650cc or less is suggested although very experienced riders on larger machines are welcome. Make sure you have bush guards.

Routes will be furnished as “track files” and a GPS is recommended, although we will ride as a group or groups, and a GPS is not mandatory. Riders should carry tire repair tools and patching gear.

We will be riding in the High Season here as days are almost always sunny and daytime temps moderate. Early reservations are strongly recommended. Reserve now and cancel later if need be. Lodging and RV spaces will fill early.

Rider Safety and Responsibilities
In addition to requiring the use of a DOT approved helmet on all MTF rides, the MTF RRR Committee strongly encourages the use of Motorcycle specific protective clothing and footwear while participating in any off road event. ATGATT reduces the severity of injuries in an accident and we want every participant in our events to be as safe as possible.

The MTF RRR Committee strongly encourages each participant in our events to self assess their riding style, interests, need for breaks and riding skill level and to keep that assessment in mind when choosing a riding partner or small group (2-4 riders) to ride with at our events. Sharing the road with someone of similar interests and riding style not only makes the ride more enjoyable for you, but safer for everyone.

The third part of safety when riding in remote areas is knowing where you are and how to get out. For this reason each rider should have a GPS device with the routes loaded and be familiar with it's operation and use. Being lost in a maze of endless gravel and dirt roads as darkness descends is a safety issue both for yourself and those who will have to search for you.
