Arrived in Phoenix.

In Phoenix for a week or so of rest. Drinking water, lots, iced, because Phoenix is hot, dry, and sunny. Acero is currently sitting on the apartment balcony getting a tire change. Losing the knobbies that got me out of Colorado’s snowy slush and mud, back to the slicker Mondials that took me everywhere prior to Manitou Springs. For anyone interested, the Mondials are 2″ wide, and were fine for the Divide. There were a few descents where knobbies would have been appreciated, but not necessary. It’s also time to check brake pads, and maybe replace my cracked mirror. Will talk about this and more in some posts coming soon, as well as about the ride from Colorado to New Mexico to Arizona. But here’s some of what rest life looks like.

ImageMaking dough, for many things. Taking advantage of having a kitchen to use.

ImageChristian flies in from Michigan to visit too.

ImageCarbs. Gotta get in a pizza fix since (at least so far) my Arizona route hasn’t gone through Flagstaff, home of Pizzicletta.

ImagePlus bagels, Haus Mitt heritage, putting to use some of the things Renny taught me. Food is essential to recovery, always.

    • Black Rock Orchard apples are perfect this year…hard, tasty, small, and crunchy! Can’t wait to hit the market tommorow after yoga. The weather is cool, crisp, and energyzing. Unfortunately then I have to go to work tho I’m sick and tired of working. Whoever said life was “fair”?
