October 12 - The Place

I won't be able to lead this Sunday for the ride to The Place, as I'll be doing Tour de Scottsdale instead. So someone needs to look at a map and figure out a way to get there.

I'll leave you with something I found on the Intertubes...

Mother's Day Ride

This week, our destination is the Deer Valley Airport restaurant. Yep, again it's a place in the north valley, but finding a place that will accommodate us on Mother's Day can be tough. It's one of the two days of the year that all wait staff dread (the other being Valentine's Day of course).

See ya Sunday!

February 9 - Aunt Chilada's

Destination is Aunt Chilada's, and as usual they open at 9 for us (normally its later). So we'll be doing a longer ride before breakfast. I was thinking up the Dreamy Draw, and then the 54th St. Mummy Mountain route south, then west on McDonald.... hey, is that groaning I hear already?

February destinations are up!

First up this weekend, Paradise Bakery at Gainey Village. Perhaps they'll have a nice grilled groundhog special...

Back to the Future

It's January 1st, and we all begin yet another trip around the sun today. Here's hoping we all come out the other side happy and healthy. The new schedule is posted over there on the left, first up is Deer Valley Airport.

The weather looks awesome for the next week at least. It's the reason I moved here from Omaha, where as I type this they're struggling to get the temperature over zero. Should be great biking to work weather, though its awfully dark when I leave in the morning. Sunrise won't be until 7:33 this Sunday, so be sure to have some lights on your bike if you ride to the park.
