Weekly Update

Greetings Riders,

If you missed the newsletter last week with my review about Arizona Bike Week, Click Here to View.

As I mentioned to you last week. Arizona Bike Week begins this week and I am out all week helping build Phoenix Bikefest taking place at the Peoria Sports Complex starting on Thursday, April 12th. As of today, the PBF Ride Through Experience is up, and we will be building the Tiki Bar inside of it on Wednesday. Please stop by and say hi sometime this weekend. Click Here to see progress of first day of build.
Mrs. C. and I did the Mayor's Run last Saturday and were able to ride through the Cardinals Stadium, Ride down the runway at Luke Air Force Base and then take a lap around the track at ISM Raceway (formerly PIR). It was a great run and all when as planned. If you were unable to attend, I took video of each location. Click the following links to view each one:

And here is another great photo by Rusty Childress of the bikes riding down the runway at Luke Air Force Base. Click Here.

After the Mayor's Run last Saturday, Mrs. C. and I had some time to ride out to Cave Creek to see what was going on at the Hideaway and the Roadhouse. It was very busy and looks like a good start to Bike Week.

Some of you may know Carey Hart, former professional freestyle motocross competitor, motorcycle racer and also known for being the first motorcyclist to perform a back flip on a 250cc motorcycle during a competition. Carey is also married to the singer PINK since 2006. Carey will
be ending his "Good Ride" at Bikefest and then will be riding down to the Bike Night at Salt y Tequila restaurant at Westgate from 7-9 PM doing celebrity bar tending to raise money for his charity. Stop by and grab some food and drink to say hi to Carey. There are 8 more nights of Bike Night, all on Friday nights ending on June 1st.
