​​Time For Another Ride!
ALR 108 Ride Tuesday, June 21, 2022


   Below are some changes and updates that were discussed at last night's ALR 108 meeting. 

(1) Next ride is next Tues, June 21st but no longer to Sno Cap in Seligman. Instead we'll ride down Iron Springs Rd to attend the Grand Opening of the Kirkland Mining Company's pozzolan mine that we've seen under construction over the last year or so, north of the Kirkland Post Office. This is billed as an "Eat and Greet" with food truck, mine tours and general info, to include the 130 year history of the Kirkland deposit. A different type of event, but should be interesting. Meet at 11:00 for KSU 11:15 from behind the Big Lots in the Gail Gardner Walmart shopping center and we'll meet John on site.  

(2)  Reduce the frequency and distance of our rides, and possibly the timing.. As we've all been effected by sharply rising gas prices, especially for 91 octane gas, we've decided to drop a few rides from the schedule, particularly those of greater distance, and go to perhaps once a month for the next few months. This reduction, coupled with what's been a hotter than normal season so far, could increase turnout and enjoyment of our rides. For the hot months, we'll try to tend toward rides earlier in the day, like when the destination offers breakfast / brunch.  

(3) Specific schedule changes, in addition to item (1) above.  Delete the ride for July 7th, which was to be to Pine - too long for a short lunch. Keep the July 18th date, but change destination to West Side Lilo's in Seligman. (Agee's in Munds Park is too long a ride now and road and bridge construction on 89 north of Sedona to go via Oak Creek Canyon would be challenging.) Delete the ride for Aug 12th. Keep the ride for Aug 24th with destination to be decided later.

 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.
