Sunday January 14 - Miracle Mile

This week, the destination is Miracle Mile Deli, but I won't be able to lead- Sunday is the PF Chang's Rock and Roll Marathon, and my wife is planning to do the 10K. So I'll be heading to Tempe for that.

Of course, attendance on the Sunday after the soup party is usually pretty sparse, so feel free to use this as an excuse to stay in bed Sunday.

See you all Saturday night!

New Years Weekend

This Sunday 12/31, we wind up 2017 with a new spot, Breadcrafters Bakery on North Tatum.

There will also be a pickup ride on Monday Jan 1, destination nCounter in Tempe. In order to avoid the cold AND the drunks coming home at daybreak, let's start at 9:30 AM at Granada (Intellicast says it should be about 55 degrees when we start out).

See you Sunday and/or Monday!

Sunday December 24 - U.S. Egg

It's been a whole month since I've last been to Granada. Looks like this Sunday is a go, no rain in the forecast. I am 72 miles short of my mileage goal for 2017, so it looks like I should easily make it.

Destination this Sunday U.S. Egg at 7th St. and Greenway. Hope to see you all at the park!

Sunday Oct 22 - Oink

This Sunday, our destination is Oink across from Paradise Valley Mall. Dedrie writes in this month's schedule that no reservations are accepted, but they will assist us specially when we arrive.

That being said, if they are jammed up with people when we get there, we can jet over to Chompie's on the other side of PV Mall.

See y'all on Sunday!

October schedule posted

First up is The Henry this Sunday October 1. Two important things: the start time now changes to 7:30 AM for the winter season. And this week I am not available to lead, so you gotta find it on your own.

Here's a picture we took last Sunday as we said our goodbyes to Patty (click the photo to embiggen). Good luck, and enjoy retirement!

          Bike Racks Coming To 7th Ave!!
              By Gary LeBlanc, CASA Vice President and Project Manager

The Community Alliance of Seventh Avenue (CASA) is providing bike racks
to businesses in the Melrose area of 7th Avenue, which will tie in with the
City’s new CanalScape project and connect with bike lanes that serve
many neighborhoods.

CASA has relationships with the 7th Avenue Merchant’s Association, City of
Phoenix, the U.S. Department of HUD, Arizona State University, St. Luke's
Health Initiatives, local neighborhoods and  other organizations committed to
developing walkable, bicycling, opportunity-rich communities connected to light rail.

CASA has identified more than 40 properties where bike racks can be installed
at businesses on 7th Avenue between Camelback and Indian School Roads. 
Funding for the project has been secured, and we are moving forward with
the purchase and install of these racks.  Charley Jones, President of CASA,
designed the “M” shaped rack with help from his daughter Nicole.  Many
thanks to both of you for making a design that reflects the character of the
Melrose area.  Funding was provided by the PB Bell Companies, developers
of the “The Curve” apartments at 7th Ave and Montecito, and our hats go off
to this local company for being such a great corporate neighbor.

Keep an eye out for new racks popping up in the months ahead!
