Bill and Susan led this ride for many years. Bob will lead us through the scenic rolling hills of Sonoita.  ​The weather should be a bit cooler.  We will eat lunch back at the trailers after the ride.  If you're camping with us Saturday night bring a dish to share at dinner.  We will be leading the ride from the camp ground off Forest Service road #636.


Directions:  I-10 to exit 281; Hwy 83, Sonoita Highway, to Sonoita Center; go straight from the stop sign at the intersection with Hwy 82. In 1/4 mile road turns left 90 degrees towards Parker Canyon Lake (don't turn here), keep going straight.  Now you're on Papago Springs Road; go past Roland Lane and start looking for the second cattle guard. Once over the cattle guard start looking for Forest Service road #636 on your right. You will see campgrounds. Plenty of room to park.  From I-10 and Houghton Road it takes 45 minutes to 1 hour to the campgrounds.  Contact Becky @ cell #(520) 444-9111.  Call or text her for more info or to RSVP.


Ride Leaders: ​Bob Peterson and Becky Tucker
