McD Summer Night Ride Series

Relax in the magical experience of trail riding the desert nights at McDowell Mountain Regional Park (MMRP). Enjoy the beauty of silhouetted saguaros, the sound of trail beneath your wheels, and the chatter of night birds—all under the starlit skies.

This is the seventh year of the Night Ride Series, which is for all mountain bike ability levels. Upcoming rides take place on Saturdays July 13, August 3, August 31 and September 21. Choose your trails, your companions and your start time, from 7 to 7:30 p.m.

The ride begins and ends at the Pemberton Trailhead. Trail maps will be available. Bring lights with a minimum of three hours of power. Riders are advised to bring both helmet and handlebar lights for optimum visibility. You are riding at your own risk. Please be respectful of your own limitations as well as those of other riders. Plan to complete your ride around 9 p.m.; then join FHB for food, music and movies.

Location: 16300 McDowell Mountain Park Dr., MMRP. For more information, call 602-506-2930, ext. 3, or visit
