Time For Another Ride!
ALR 108 Ride Thursday May 31, 2023
Just an update and reminder of our overnighter ride to Holbrook and the Petrified Forest National Forest.
Meeting: Meet on Wed, May 31st at the Dewey Maverick at 9:30 for KSU 9:45.
Route: I'd like segments of the ride to follow general guidance of being about 100 miles, and/or an hour or so.
First leg: Dewey to Payson (Maverik) for gas, then Culver's for lunch by 11:30, a leg of about 85 miles, time about 1 hr, 35 min., and climbing in elevation
Second leg: Payson to Heber, likely the Circle K just to the west for a break. distance about 52 miles over 55 minutes, also climbing in elevation.
Third leg: Heber to Holbrook, distance 45 miles, 50 minutes. About 180 miles overall from meeting point.
Info: Gas prices for all these stops enroute are lower than the Dewey Maverik by a bit. Overall temps are expected to be in the 70's (except maybe low 80's through Camp Verde). Climbing in elevation will help the cooling much of the way, but then from Heber (at 6627 ft), we descend to Holbrook (at 5082 ft). Possible dinner location near the area of the hotels: Tom and Suzie Diner, good reviews by locals.
Thursday: Tour the park and local area. Friday: Return home via Winslow, about 150 miles.
Expected participants: Juanita and John, Kathy and Doug, Nancy (likely by cage) and Greg Flippen, Suzanne and Mike (both by cage), and Sandy and Bob. Let me know if your plans have changed or if there's interest from anyone else. Thanks !

rider's thought for the day:
Please respond to me a few days in advance if you're planning on going, as the restaurants would like a head count estimate.
