april randoms

Off to Sedona this weekend for some red rock goodness.
I think the last time I rode there was the Coconino 250 
almost 7 months ago. I originally planned for some urban overnighter riding
but the pull of the Sedonuts vortex was too much.

Here are some randoms until then.

the great bike chase

I took the boy out for the Great Bike Chase.
A bike rodeo, radio disney, other bike related stuffs,
a bike ride and a baseball game.
His first.
Good times.
Started out with a little light rail action.

































This cop was good with kids.



























































Baxter gets frisky as we pose for a photog on top of the building.




















































































































After too much sugar, salt and beer it was time to find the bikes
and hit the light rail for a ride home. Good stuff.

620 and the bees knees

An inquiry about some new trails on South Mountain resulted in
a nice group ride of 6 folks eager to check out the new wares.
It's been some time since I rode with Kathleen and SuLing
and we met some new faces as well Eric, Rick and Ryan.



















620/ridge line was awesome.
































































































New and loose.





























First time on this area of the mountain.
I spy the ruins.














Bees knees indeed. Shhhhh...





























































     









SuLing and then Ryan wind it out.

toms thumb

Jason, Zort and I headed out for a ride in the McDowells.
The trail up to Tom's Thumb is still relatively new and I had yet to ride it.
It was a nice long climb with awesome views. We went up the West side and down the East
side to go up and over Bell pass and out the Leavee Trail for some 14 miles and 3.5 hours out.
Hot out.
Good stuff.
