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 April 8 - Candy's Kitchen

Candy's Kitchen is our destination this week, and it's going to be a warm one, so remember to bring water, and remember the 6:30 start time.

Someone from work sent me this video. I might need to rig this up on my commuting bike...

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 February 18 - Times Square

The rain finally went away, I was only able to get two commutes in this week. But Sunday is looking up! This week it's Times Square at 7th St. and Union Hills. You can expect a relatively flat route, up the canal path, up to Coral Gables. See ya Sunday!

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!

Sunday January 21 - Eat at Joe's

Well, it's going to be a frigid Sunday morning, 40 degrees. Destination is Joe's Diner on 7th Ave. The question is, are you man/woman enough to brave the cold?

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!
