happenings

found out about this one from mackey
and it originally posted at the bummer life

























sweet. i welcome anything that builds the
bike culture in this valley. i've thought about
doing an alley cat but it would just be the
usual suspects and we kinda do that already.
speaking of which....
we are starting the dirt crits next week.
the test run last night went swimmingly.
but my liver seems to have recovered.

canal century
















we've long wanted to explore the
east side of the valley.
gary had done some reconnaissance
and offered me and flask gordon burritos
after we rode the 20 miles to his house at 6am.
it was cold and foggy as i left my house.
we got to gary's quickly and then made our way
to red mountain. then it was down south to asu east
and lunch.
then is was back to tempe and ultimately phoenix.

the girl next door

we are blessed with mountains in the middle
of our urban area. everyone knows and loves south mtn.
it's cousin to the north is largely reviled. trail 100 is said with contempt.
but really it's great. taken for granted no doubt.
on tue nite i rode up shaw butte.
this morning i did a cold weather jaunt on the east side.
lotta horses out but you can generally expect them
to be some of the friendliest folks,
if you exercise some manners yourself.
