Bike Accident Attorneys and Two Wheel Jones are hosting a group ride to Payson Arizona for the 2nd year now. Starting from the Two Wheel Jones store in Gilbert (Baseline & Greenfield). Wheels down at 3am sharp! Hydration only aid stations will be provided at least 2x along the way as well as SAG support for anyone who is faltering.

Additional Important & Updated Info


DEPARTURE: The ride departs promptly at 3:00am whether you are there or not. The ride will depart from the Two Wheel Jones store located in Gilbert Arizona on the south West corner of Baseline and Greenfield. The address is: 4341 E Baseline Rd #104, Gilbert, AZ 85234. They will likely be open early for any last minute purchases of gels, tires, tubes, etc. Please be on time or you may end up seeing a bunch of taillights pulling away…

CHECK IN/BAG DROP: You must arrive by 2:30am to check in for this ride. There will be waivers, registration confirmation, bike check in & tagging, and a bag drop. If you show up at 2:55am you will NOT have enough time to complete this process. Be early, but arrive no later than 2:30am. Every cyclist will have the opportunity to drop a bag off on the one of the buses for the ride home. This can be a fresh change of clothes, a recovery drink, etc., what ever you like. Each bag must be clearly marked with your name on it. You are providing our own bag – a grocery sack will work fine. Just write your name on it, and put in your seat on the bus. Each cyclist will need to tag their bike as well for this group ride and bike transport back. Bike tags will be provided.
