Description

Greetings Riders! The Trail Riders of Southern Arizona (TRS) are pleased to release information about the 6th running of There Will Be Dust! As in the past, this event is a fundraiser for local charities.

Ride Date:
Saturday November 17, 2018. Single day ride only this year.

Staging Location:
The Town of Patagonia, Arizona. The community is quirky and they like it that way. Visitors say that Patagonia’s unique spirit is easily perceived and is their reason to stay or to return. Situated at over 4,000 feet elevation between the Santa Rita Mountains and the Patagonia Mountains in the riparian corridor of Sonoita Creek,

The Town Council has graciously allowed TRS to use a public open space in the center of town for camping and staging. Its located at the intersection of McKeown & 4th Street.

Here is a link for the town of Patagonia Az. : http://patagonia-az.gov

Routes & Bikes:

Meals:
