Well, I hope your are enjoying this perfect weather that we are having now,
because it looks like starting December 1st, the long range
forecast is predicting much cooler weather for the month of December. But that is
only on our scale. Still way more desirable than many other places we could
live. If you are new to the newsletter and are looking for some ideas on riding,
2 weeks ago I talked about riding up South Mountain as a good local idea to get
out on the bike and take a good ride with an awesome view of the valley.
Here to Read. Last week I suggested 4 stops in
Sedona that you might not have been to that we found to be a great time and will
give you a destination and another excuse to take a ride. There is still time to
do these with continued great weather up North. Click Here to
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, the Cyclerides.com
Toys to Kids
ride is going to be on Saturday, December 7th this
year. I have asked for Children First Academy from downtown Phoenix to bring as
many as 120 kids aged from K-3 this year for the event. For those of you that
have not been to this event before, we bus in these children to Westgate City
Center next to the giant Christmas tree on the grass where we entertain them,
feed them and allow them to pick out any 3 toys out of the huge pile of toys
that they want. It is an awesome sight to see them scoping out the gifts that
they want, and go get them. This is my 11th year of doing this event and it is
always a thrill to see how appreciative these kids are for what YOU do for them.
Please bring at least one toy per person and enjoy the show. See Photos from last year. See a video from a
couple of years ago. Really worth while. Click
Here to View.
But this year I need your help!
I have ELVIS
lined up for entertainment, but I would really love to have some
kind of animal act that would include dogs, birds, etc. that would entertain the
kids AND adults. Since these kids are either literally homeless, or in temporary
housing at best, most of them don’t have pets of their own. Being a devoted pet
owner, I thought it would be fun to entertain them with a good animal show. So,
does anyone out there know of a good show like this that could do it on December
7th. Also a good clown or magician act would be good too. Any help you could
give me would be appreciated. I want this to be memorable for the kids. Email me
at email@example.com with any suggestions. Thank
This Thursday night, November 14th, will be the final Cyclerides.com Westgate Bike Night
presented by Arrowhead Harley-Davidson and Ridenow Powersports of
the Fall season. This has been an incredible Fall season with thousands of
riders attending over the last 10 weeks to enjoy great live music, food, drink,
special displays and fun. Thanks to all who attend every week to make this the
best bike night in the Southwest. It is fun to talk to those that are from out
of town and watch them send pictures back to their buddies to show them what our
bike night looks like. We will start up again in late March of next year after
the Coyotes are done playing on Thursday nights. This week our live
music will be “The Visitors”. These guys are great, as all of our bands
have been. Ride in for the last night of season! See you Thursday night.
