Night Shredders - San Tan
San Tan Mountain Regional Park
If you’re looking for an adventure where your trail riding abilities will be challenged, then look no further than Night Shredders. You will be riding the San Tan trails after park hours, which means it’s only the rocks, dips, and turns you’ll navigate through. Our policy, “No Rider Left Behind” means we ride together in a group for safety reasons. It is mandatory to wear a helmet and please bring plenty of water, an extra tube and 2 sources of light; LED rechargeable lights with at least 600 lumen. Why? The desert gets very dark at night. Riders under 18-years of age must complete a Parental Consent form. Hope to see you on the trail soon. Meet at the Flag Pole.

Date: 10/1/2014
Time: 8:00 PM    
Registration Required: No    
Fee: $6.00 per vehicle park entry fee
