Memorial Weekend

I have announcements, and they are threefold...

The schedules for June AND July are posted. Note that all destinations are basically midtown, which is probably not a bad idea for the hot summer months-we can make it as long or short as we want depending on the heat.

This Sunday is Times Square at 7th Ave and Union Hills. Forecast for Sunday is not horrible, only 93 for a high, so you have no excuses.

Lastly, we're planning a Monday holiday pickup ride from Granada- Note that the start time is earlier, 6 AM for Monday. We're planning on Matt's Big Breakfast in Tempe, however if the crowd waiting there is large, the old reliable Ncounter is only a couple blocks away.

See ya Sunday!

Sunday May 6 - Great Australian Bakery

The May schedule has been posted, and first up is a new place for us, the Great Australian Bakery in Scottsdale. Here is the menu, take a look. 

Going to be a hot one on Sunday they say. Oh joy, summer here already. 

Finally, my favorite band (They Might Be Giants) finished up their US tour last week in Philadelphia. They streamed it live, and that show now lives on the YouTube. Their show is embedded below, set 1 then set 2.

Sunday April 22 - Randy's

A reminder, I will not be available this Sunday for the excursion to Randy's. Someone has to take a look at the Maricopa County bike map and pick a route.

On another subject, Kyle Schlotfelt asked me to post this hiking trip up Flagstaff way on June 16 (sounds fun, but I'll be in Minneapolis that weekend):
Putting together a hiking trip to the top of Mt. Humphreys June 16, 2018. The highest peak in Arizona with an amazing view unparalleled anywhere. The journey is not easy but very due able if you plan for the trip. Out and back it is 9.2miles and will take 6-8 hours to finish. Attached is further details about the event and what to expect and what to bring. We start at 9300 feet and will climb over 3000 feet to our destination. Bring plenty of water, at least three liters, and clothes that will accommodate quickly changing weather. 
My plan is to meet at the base of Snow Bowl ski area at 7:00am and get the adventure started.  If all goes well we shall be back at the base area around 1:00-2:00pm.
After an ice cold beer to celebrate you are invited to our cabin in Munds Park for a BBQ and celebration. Let us know if you want to attend. 
Happy hiking.

Sunday March 4 - Moon Valley Cafe

Steak and eggs anyone? Expect a mostly flat ride there. The weather says a low of 51 in the morning.

A long week, it's been. Staying out late on Tuesday to see "They Might Be Giants" at the Marquee. Great show, but the next morning was painful.

On the following night, TMBG were in Los Angeles and appeared on Conan O'Brien. Ladies and Gentlemen, They Might Be Giants...

Sunday Feb 4 - Luci's at the Orchard

The February schedule is posted, and first up is Luci's at the Orchard. Weather looks to be about perfect for February, so you have no excuses.

As our destination is so close to the park, expect a big loop through Arcadia most likely. Oh, I found this Saturday afternoon, it's teh funny.

See you Sunday!
