I wanted to put some good miles on my new saddle to see if it's a keeper. Jury is still out. Started at o'dark thirty so I wouldn't miss too much football. Cold! Frost on the grass the first 30 miles.

Rode north through Tempe Town Lake and the Scottsdale Greenbelt. From there I weaved my way north and east looking for roads with bike lanes. Finally got on Thompson Peak Parkway, then Pima Rd which are both nice to ride on.

Rode up Pima to Cave Creek Rd and took it east. After a bit I noticed my cell phone had fallen out of its holster. Yikes. I figured I must have lost it when I pulled over to shed my wind breaker off Pima Rd some miles back. Finding my phone went to the top of my priority list, so back I went. After three stops I found the place I had been before and there was my phone lying in plain site. :y:

I decided at that point to head towards home since it was already after 10 AM and I was a long way from home. The trip back was mostly flat or downhill which was nice. Rode down to the pawn shop to check out a bike in order to get the extra mileage needed for a century. Awesome day. :)
