After a pre-ride beer, we met up in the rear parking area to decide on our route and commence to pedal.
I confess that I don't know this young lady's name but I've chatted with her at a recent Tweed ride. I like her lace top.
Biking for two.
Soon we were pedaling through the NAU campus, which enjoys many bike paths and not a few hills.
After returning to Granny's for the post-ride beer (and a soda for little Claire), I prepared for the possibility of a summer monsoon while we were inside by wrapping my saddle in a plastic grocery bag.
A plastic grocery bag makes an excellent, though admittedly not very stylish, rain cover and Flagstaff cyclists in-the-know carry them during monsoon season for just in case.
On the way home, Bob and I spotted this mural on the outside of a photography studio. I pass by here at least once a week and have never noticed it so it might be new. Regardless, I really like it as a nice addition to a funky southside neighborhood.
