May 21 - The Henry

First off, thanks to Tom for giving me and my disabled bicycle a ride home yesterday, I really appreciated it. Looks like it will need a new freehub most likely.

Now about next Sunday- I will not be able to lead the ride to The Henry. So someone's going to have to make a plan. I would suggest the Dreamy Draw, over into PV, south to Mockingbird, then the 54th St. meander alongside of Mummy Mountain, down to Camelback Inn, and west and south on McDonald/44th St. Or, you could circle around Arcadia for awhile.



Anyway, I'll be around for the May 28 ride to First Watch, and if anyone wants to ride on Memorial Day the 29th, let me know and I'll post something.

March 26 - Wildflower Bread Company


A reminder... I will NOT be showing up on Sunday to lead the ride to Wildflower Bread Co. as I will be participating in the Bike MS event this weekend.

Remember, this week is the LAST 7:30 AM start. On April 2, we move to a 6:30 AM start. And I'll see you then. And if you have a couple of bucks burning a hole in your pocket and haven't yet donated to MS, go ahead and click that link over on the left.

See you on April 2!

March 19 - Cracker Barrel


I'll be there to lead the ride to the Cracker Barrel this Sunday, but will be unable to stay for breakfast. We have tickets to the Padres/Reds game in Peoria, so I've got to get home for a shower first.

I will have a map that I will hand off to someone to find your way back. See ya Sunday!

Valley Bike Month coming in April



April is Bike Month in the Valley of the Sun. You can view all of the various events here, culminating with the ABC Desert Classic on April 29.

I am tentatively planning on participating, if the work thing cooperates. More information on the Desert Classic can be found here.

And as long as I'm blathering, this Sunday's destination is New York Bagels & Bialys.  The forecast looks pretty good, hopefully the tights can be put away for the season now. See ya Sunday!

March Schedule Posted

First up this month is Moon Valley Cafe, one of my favorites. And wonder of wonders, the weather looks like it might cooperate! Of course, with all the sunshine coming back, the weeds in my yard will be popping up like crazy I am sure.

See ya Sunday!

Sunday at LoLo's

Alexis took this shot of the gang on Sunday at LoLo's. Was nice to have a decent weekend, but rain is moving in this afternoon. Sigh.

I'll have the March schedule posted as soon as I get it.

Rainy Days and Mondays


Tomorrow's ride to Sylvia's La Canasta is likely going to be too wet and rainy, at least for me anyway. I'll wait until morning to decide for sure.

However, it's looking promising for that Monday holiday ride. Meet at Granada at 8 AM Monday, Jamie has a plan. I won't be there, but at least I should be able to bike to work.

By the way, up there on the left is a link to my donation page for the Bike MS Arizona event coming up March 25-26. Again this year, I will match donations up to a total of $250.

I'll leave you with a little musical interlude for this wet weekend...

Don't Call Me, Owl Call You...


Just outside a co-workers office, a pair of owls has set up housekeeping in a planter. Someone snapped a couple photos of Dad and Mom. Click the photos to embiggen.




Another Holiday Ride I Can't Do


Jamie says there's going to be a ride Monday 2/20 (Presidents Day). Same place, Granada Park at 8:00 AM. I can't make it but if you can, I believe they'll be off to Tempe.
