number 6

It was time again for Jim's annual Flight of the Pigs. Almost 70 miles and an all day affair.
It's always a good place to see old friends and make new ones.
























































































Everyone made the time cutoff at Buena Vista.




















































Towards the end of National I had a nasty tumble off my bike and rolled a few times down the side of the mountain. I was lucky to escape with some cuts and bruises.

Caption this.































































































































































mike came thru with the awesome sag stop at Papago when we regroup at Hunt's Tomb. Nitrates, caffeine and alcohol - what more do you need?





















































BBQ and awards at Jim's. Good times.

Phoenix, Tempe, mesa, Allwhitetukee, Chandler.
































Los Taquitos.




























Ten FIDY



















Tired and heady we opted for the light rail.










































17 year old watch - been thru two batteries.

kid ride

He needs shorter cranks I think and the bike is a tank.
I like to think these shortcomings will make it that much better
when he gets a mountain bike that fits. Or that's how I justify at smoking deal on a bike.
Fun was had a that is what is important.

mellowcross

It was time for the AZES mcdowell monstercross.














Driving around with the rocket box and the rally driving last weekend = terrible mpg




























Chad's lunch



























































The legs felt like shit from the word go. I may have gotten little too crazy with the foam roller the night before.
It was a beautiful day for a bike ride.
See the fountain in Fountain Hills?




























































































I didn't have the legs, head or heart to head down and do the competative loops so I opted to do a simple ride around the mcdowells.




















































































Really?
