Fall ride on the 666 in Arizona

Let's discuss a group ride this Fall that will include the Coronado Trail ie: old 666. I'm thinking at least a 3 day ride. First night ( Friday) we gather in Show Low. Second day we ride to Eager then down the 666 to 78 then over to Silver City for that night. Third day (Sunday) ride back to our homes which ever way works the best for everyone. That second day ride is 266 miles but will take about 10 hours with stops and lunch. That third day could be long depending on where you live but then your home.


First blush I'm thinking sometime in October. I for one have an obligation in Iowa mid September. Let's talk it up. With or without SO I don't care.

I'd be in. I haven't stayed in Silver City in a looonnnggg time. I rode through there earlier this year and it looks like there's a bit of a revival in downtown Silver C. Could be fun.


I'd be 2-up.

Good interest so far. As it gets closer I can see about setting up motels.

Don't know, that's kinda a rowdy crowd gathering. Why not, O.K.
If Roland's in, it should be safe?
@Darbinco , you can stop in @ casa gooddog either way in or out. Same Same Roland of course.

Was a little worried about you Zonie hoodlums the last time, but the criminal activity was kept to a minimum. Since I'm not single anymore, I'll need to curb it back some.

Last time I rode into Show Low, it rained for a couple of hours coming from Tombstone. Got up in the morning to 26 degrees at 6 AM. Was expecting black ice at the worst, rain at the best. Waited until 9 AM and rode perfectly clear to Prescott in the 60s.


I'd love to join you but am having back problems. I can ride but it's hard getting on and off the bike. Going for tests soon. Might be feeling better by October. Call me tentative but interested.
