Little Jake and the Soul Searchers was last night. It was great. Got my soul shot.
We met our group and headed out the same route as yesterday and went north.
We went up the 203 steps of the lighthouse.
We had a C2C 2016 reunion dinner last night at Ourriggers. Great food and some tales were told. Sherry and Mary Ellen are locals, see yellow shirts. Great fun.
I am staying at Casa Niewald South in Port Orange, Florida. Great stay and oh so comfortable. NCAA on all the time when in. Not sure about that Virginia pick. We collected up this morning and out we went.
We had a great breakfast in our room and I set out for Douglas. It was about 26 miles pretty much downhill on the beautiful open road. Mariella would pick me up at the Hotel Gadsden. A few pics. First stop Lowell.
Bikes packed and organized for a early roll out to Tucson Airport. A last dinner at the Copper Queen Hotel-1902 room. Hard to believe it is almost over in Arizona. I will take a day off unpack the bike and pack for Bike Florida.
I was out first and went on a walk up the hill on Opera to check out the neighborhood.
Mariella and I packed up our rental car with a big box with a bike in it, my bike assembled with the front wheel off, my empty bike box suitcase, big agnes large duffel, a suitcase, a back pack and some food and water bottles in bags. It was on to the caverns.
It was elected the best cavern in America. We did not have a reservation and it might have been a huge mistake. We were lucky and there had been a cancellation and we went with a 1:20 pm group. It was incredible. No photography. Strict rules but a grand tour with an expert. This from a postcard.
Mariella and I slept in a little and went to a sleepy breakfast. I went to get the rental car. Off to Sabino Canyon Recreation Area. We got in with our senior pass.
The views were incredible.
Mariella and I decided to ride 23 miles or so on the loop this morning. It was gorgeous again.
We saw a road runner but he was busy eating a lizard and was not ready for his close up. There were a lot washes and this Alamo Wash. Every bridge is unique with a different name and tile art unique to each bridge.
Mariella needed to be at the hotel and I had an opportunity to ride with a small group around the entire loop. It was a 54 mile urban and desert ride.
The trail art was cool. I took a picture of Kurt on C2C 2016 here.
