    After his first trip (in mid-July), all I heard was it brown and hot as hell out here. Now he's thinking about moving but not sure he can handle the summers

    Lol!! Piece of cake, after a few years he'll be cold when it's 70 just like the rest of us.

    Family ride through Canal Convergence artwalk at Scottsdale Waterfront, to OHSO. Pics a little sketchy, but you get the idea.

    Hadn't been to Usery/Pass Mtn in a while, but it's great that it connects to Hawes more directly now.

    Yeah it's been sanitized on the west side, but I personally am not missing the water bars (the few still on the southern end seems about right).

    Another masterpiece of video and editing scotty but what's with dragging the brakes through the switchback at 0:35? Maybe it's an enduro thing

    So nice to have that area back in the mix.

    Photo dump from the past two weekends

    Last weekend the Queen's Ransom v3.0 bikepacking ride went down, still stoked on that one. Huge turnout as well.

    10 strong to start with a few more tagging along for portions of the ride.

    How were the wildflowers?? ok.

    Area 52 playground.

    Then. this past Friday I set out on a loop I've been wanting to do for some time. It was a long one, but so worth it. My route took me on a CW loop up/over/around Four Peaks, adding in as much dirt as I could to complete the 111.3 miles. Just another 17 hour spin to get me ready for the AZTR750 next month.
