Nov. 22 - Daily Dose

I'm planning on doing Tour de Tucson on Saturday, so I can't say if I'll make it on the Sunday ride. Depends on how Saturday goes. Anyway, destination is Daily Dose Midtown. Weather looks nice for the weekend, so with any luck I'll see you Sunday.

Nov. 15 - Eggstasy

Regina located the menu for Eggstasy, our destination this week. Check it out, looks good!

This morning, the Midwest is getting slammed by the Witch of November. Yet we'll be enjoying near 80 degree days this weekend. Perfect for getting out for a ride.

And speaking of the November Witch, 40 years ago this week the freighter Edmund Fitzgerald sank in the murky depths of Lake Superior.

November schedule posted

Quite a few new places this month. This week, it's D'Lish, on Scottsdale Rd. just south of Thomas. Regina found the menu online, take a look. See ya Sunday!

Sunday 9/20 ride

With the girls headed off on their European cycling adventure, and my annual trip to South Dakota for the Mickelson Trail Trek, the Pacer 3 group will be significantly smaller this Sunday.

In fact, if you show up, you are probably going to be the leader! Destination is the Ranch House Grill.

See y'all on the 27th!

Just wanted to say how much I appreciated the card yesterday. I had to wait until I got home to really read it, as I didn't have my bifocals with me. You all are a fun group to hang out with on Sundays, and really appreciate you putting up with my ill-timed questions from work when I'm oncall, of which there were many this past weekend.

The September schedule is posted, it's mostly new places. September is the last month of our 6:30 start time. In October we switch to our winter hours, starting at 7:30 AM.

Winter hours. It's tough to say that when its still 105 degrees out this afternoon.

August Schedule Posted

Over there on the left side. First up is Times Square at 7th St. and Union Hills.

Time to get to work. See you Sunday.

July 26 - Five and Diner

Just realized I haven't updated this in a month. The heat is starting to wear on me, as it usually does about August. Destination is Five and Diner tomorrow, out on the Res.

I looked longingly at the Mickelson Trail Trek online this week, and for the first time its full. And its 8 weeks from today.

In honor of Canada's rock and roll laureates Rush, who visit the Valley on Monday night, here's one of my favorite songs, "Red Barchetta" (yes, I landed suite tickets for it!).

June 28 - Moon Valley Cafe

FYI, I will not be available this Sunday (6/28) to lead the group. You're going to have to find Moon Valley Cafe on your own. Good luck with that, I'll be back for the July 5 ride, and hopefully the triumphant return of Regina.

June and July schedules posted

Dedrie sent me both the June and July ride schedules last week, in anticipation of her summer schedules. First up is First Watch on Thomas.

See ya Sunday...

Five Boro Bike Tour

First off, I understand Tom is OK now. The cat, we're not so sure. Glad to hear he's upright, though his bike took a beating.

Attached are some photos from the ride in NYC. Click the photo to embiggen...

Brooklyn Bronx, Queens and Sta-ten...

Don't have much time to post more, but here's a photo of Regina and I at the start of the Five Boron ride. More pics coming when I get home (our flight home is tomorrow). See ya Sunday!!!

Through the miracle of the Intertubes

The May schedule is now posted. Up first is Alo CafĂ© in Scottsdale. As I previously warned, I will not be there to lead.  Looks like this in or adjacent to Old Town Scottsdale. Have fun, see you on the 10th.

Sunday 4/26 - Randy's in Scottsdale

Just a reminder that I will not be leading the club ride this Sunday 4/26, you're on your own. Destination is Randy's, so I'd suggest maybe heading through Arcadia then cutting north up to Chaparral.

I also will not be available for the 5/3 ride as well, though I will put up the May destinations as soon as I get them. I will be back for the ride on Mother's Day 5/10.

March Schedule Posted

Over there on the left. First up is The Henry at 44th St. and Camelback. Turn to the right when you walk in, to the open seating area, and order up at the counter near the door. I remember the food and coffee being pretty darn good.

That is, if the ride comes off at all. Long range forecast shows Sunday to be a bit rainy, but all week long the weekend forecast has been changing almost hourly. So I'll see ya if I see ya.

JoBot Coffee - Sunday 1/18

I won't be showing up this Sunday, going to do a century in California this weekend. But I did want to warn you that you have the P.F. Chang's Rock and Roll Marathon to contend with this week.

JoBot Coffee is at 5th St. and Roosevelt, which is inside the "box". You'll have to cross the marathon route at some point, or go all the way around it on the west side.

Here's a map of the marathon race course, plan your route accordingly. See you on the 25th!

Happy New Year!

The January schedule is posted over there, first up is The Henry at Tatum and Camelback. Sounds like an opportunity to take the 54th St. Mummy Mountain route. So, don't say you weren't warned....
