July 4 holiday ride next week...


Just got copied on an email from Josephine- she says the July 4 holiday ride will be to The Original Pancake House, 6840 E. Camelback Rd. Starting at the usual time and place (Granada Park, 6:30 AM). The picture on the right is of their famous specialty, the Dutch Baby, "an air filled delight oven baked to golden perfection and served with lemon, whipped butter and powdered sugar to create a mouthwatering blend." Mmmmmmmm...

One note- they do not take debit cards I am told.

But before that is this Sunday's ride to the IHOP at 20th St. and Baseline in Phoenix. I mapped out a route, and it appears it is 15, perhaps 16 miles one way from the park, which would make it possibly longer than the Deer Valley Airport ride.
See ya Sunday...

R.E.M. - Chicago - June 6








Finally getting around to posting these. It seems like I haven't sat down since returning to town on Saturday night.




That's my friend and old roommate from Omaha, Dan (currently residing in the Champaign-Urbana metroplex), and my brothers Ed and Jim. We all met in the windy city to see the show.




By the way, I won't be at the park on Sunday (6/15), but Gary pledges to show up and run you all up and down every hill he can find.




See you on the 22nd.

June 1 - Mimi's Metrocenter




Another beautiful Sunday in Phoenix has brought Rog and Jen back out from hibernation. Here's a pic of them gearing up for the ride back to the park (where I of course had yet another flat tire).




The second picture is from the Dreamy Draw bike path this morning on the way to work. I've never seen a bee warning sign, so I had to stop and look. I've read that one should assume any bees you run into in Arizona should be considered Africanized or "killer" bees, and upon closer inspection I did actually see a killer bee!
