Question: “Are sport quads and dirt bikes welcome to ride this event?”
Answer: Yes, but they need to meet the legal requirements to ride in Arizona; such as a forest-approved spark arrestor. This goes for all ATVs, not just the sport quad riders.
Question: “Are helmets or other protective gear required?”
Answer: Not for side by sides, but yes for quads and dirt bikes. Although we highly recommend it even in your side by side for your safety, we follow the State of Arizona laws. https://azstateparks.com/ohv-laws-regulations
Anyone under the age of 18 MUST have helmet even in the UTVs.
Motorcycle goggles or a full-face shield must be worn to protect against eye injuries from flying debris. They reduce dust which irritates the eyes and impairs vision. Get high-quality lenses, clear or tinted. (We recommend wearing long pants, long sleeve shirts, goggles, boots that protect the ankles & gloves).
Question: “Can I ride my UTV/ATV in town?”
Answer: Yes, please be aware that you will be able to ride your UTV/ATV around town. That means that during the event you can do your grocery shopping on your UTV, you can ride to the restaurants on your UTV, fill up your UTV at the gas stations, and just explore the towns on your UTV. But you must be street legal to ride on the Hwy and streets.
Question: “When is the night ride?”
Answer: It is on Friday nights and usually at 7 p.m. They range about 15-25 miles. This is a great time to show off your lighted whips. We do ask out of respect to the other participants that during the night ride you turn off your bright light bars.
