Houston, we have a problem

So Thursday I tweaked my back, Been treating with ice and rest, and it feels OK now. However, this morning the muscle spasms were quite intense getting out of bed. So, I am iffy for leading to First Watch on Thomas.

If I don't make it, here's a suggestion- ride through the Biltmore, and work your way over to 40th St. amd go south to Washington and turn right, heading downtown. Make another right on 3rd Ave. north to Thomas, and Bob's your uncle.

August (and September) schedules posted

Sounds like Dedrie is planning a summer vacation, as she's provided both August and September destinations.

First up, it's Sip Coffee and Beer Garage. See you Sunday!

July 3

Ahh July, when the Humidity festival arrives. Although the forecast for the weekend is to dry out and get hot again. Sunday's destination is First Watch on the Black Canyon. See you at Granada at 6:30. 

And see the post below regarding a holiday ride on Monday, if anyone is interested.

July 4

Deidre usually has to me the new month's schedule early in the week, so I'll post our July 3 destination when I've got it.

But I thought I'd throw out the the idea of an extra un-sanctioned pick-up ride on the holiday, Monday July 4. How about we meet at Granada at  6 AM to beat the heat, with a destination of Le Grande Orange and pick up a bagel or muffin to go, and ride over to the Arcadia Fouth of July parade which starts at 8 AM. A small town parade in the middle of Phoenix.

Five dead in Kalamazoo

Charges are expected to be filed today for the cretin who ran down nine cyclists this week in Kalamazoo.

Here'a a link to local coverage, and below is a picture of the truck that hit them.

June schedule posted

Summer has arrived, and set up Satan's own waiting room outside. 115 this weekend? Oy. First destination this month is Matt's Big Breakfast. Hope to see you Sunday!

I stumbled across this on the Intertubes, it's Michael Stipe of R.E.M. performing David Bowie's "Ashes to Ashes" at a tribute concert April 1 at Radio City Music Hall.

Yes, Michael now looks like he fell off a Smith Brothers cough syrup bottle.

Memorial Weekend

Don't know yet what happened yesterday at Country Boys. I called today, and someone answered the phone. Seems odd they would not be open on Sunday.

This coming Sunday (May 29) is The Henry, so expect to do Mummy Mountain.

On Sunday, I mentioned meeting again on the Monday holiday for an unofficial pick-up ride, and there seemed to be interest. So let's meet Monday at the usual time (6:30 AM) at Granada. I'll have a place or two in mind, perhaps somewhere in Tempe? Harlow's Cafe looks interesting, though I will have to check to see if they are open on Monday.

Suggestions welcome of course, email to me or just wait until Monday.

May 15 - Jerry's

Just a reminder that I will not be able to lead the ride this Sunday (May 15) to Jerry's Restaurant. Please provide a full report, as I'll be gone, I like checking out new places, and the Yelp reviews are crazy- either one star or 5 stars.

On Sunday, I am going to try to hook up with Bobbi and Eugene for a ride on the Schuylkill River Trail or the Perkiomen Trail in The City of Brotherly Love.

See ya on the 22nd!

May schedule posted

First destination is The Oink Cafe. I won't be available to lead, as I'll be in Minneapolis to see The Who. I'll be back for Mothers Day on 5/8.

Here's a snippet from of Roger and Pete during the "Quadrophenia" tour in 2013. Some classic images of Pete smashing guitars on the screen behind them during "Helpless Dancer".
