4 trips to Red Mountain Park and back from Scottsdale.
Sunday we made the best chicken salad possible. Wife's route to Mesa on the road bike at 6am in pink, mine on the mtb back home in green: top of Las Sendas mountain->Tower Loop->out to tequila tree->Mine Trail->canal across the res->Pima path.
Tequila Tree had nearly a full bottle of El Jimedor gold, so i took the nearly empty bottle of El Jimedor blanc. Its a long dull ride across the canal.
Crossing Rt. 87 I had to cross the Tempe IronMan course, and peeking my head into the lane nearly caused a bunch of alien tridorks to come out of their tucks and shit their compassion socks. My nose was the most technical obstacle your average tridork will ever face, and it caused the closest Maricopa Sheriff's Deputy to tell me I needed to ride back down the B-Line to the next crossing, against traffic, on a separated highway reduced to 1-lane. m'kay, that sounds safe. I nodded to the officer then bolted through a hole and down the canal path. #breakinthelaw!
the canal is worth riding!
A brand new extension to the the mup at 92nd/Shea. Currently about 100 yards short of Cholla Drive but navigable through the dirt. path is cut and in progress extending to underpass at Cactus\96th. This will remove about 1.5 miles of unpleasant traffic. Also is an excellent spot for a safety break.
reading books in the car makes all the commuting fun for *somebody*
