September General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

Lupita’s Hot Dogs, Phoenix, AZ – September 26, 2019

by El Presidente

Lupita’s Hot Dogs came highly recommended by a couple of co-workers of mine that are known to be “foodies”. I myself, am a connoisseur of a fine, gourmet hot dog. Though it’s not the typical faire or usual type of location that I pick for our club’s General Membership Meeting & Dinner, I figured that it would be a fun adventure. Plus, variety is the spice of life, no?

September 2nd Sunday Breakfast Recap

Breakfast Club, Scottsdale, AZ – September 8, 2019

by El Chino Loco

The September breakfast meetup was held at the Scottsdale Breakfast Club and we had 18+ people join in on the morning. We had more than RSVP’ed forcing some to sit at any open table as this location is typically very busy. Sometimes we sit on the open patio but today was just warm enough to sit inside.

August General Membership Meeting & Dinner Recap

Haus Murphy’s, Glendale, AZ – August 29, 2019

by El Presidente

At the request of Philippe, Haus Murphy’s was the location for this month’s General Membership Meeting & Dinner.

It had been a while since I had been there, so I was excited about this month’s event!

Route 66 Tour: Great 1st Multi-day Ride & Updates

Parts Unkown, AZ

by El Presidente

The 2019 Route 66 Tour is fast approaching!  This is a great ride to go on if you’ve been pining for going on a multi-day trip but haven’t had the confidence on going on one by yourself.  With short riding days and frequent stops, this is the perfect ride to get started on!  Also, since we’re never really that far away from civilization, you can always pick something up at the store that you may have forgotten to pack or for a circumstance that you didn’t plan for (cold weather).  Heck, we’ll be passing not too far away from one GO AZ’s newest locations in Flagstaff.

The gpX-Files

By El Presidente

As the Board of Directors of this club is putting together the 2020 ride schedule, I thought it would be a great time to write about a couple things I found when importing GPX files of trips that someone else has routed on Basecamp or another mapping software.

Join us for a ride that has been a long standing tradition of our club.  Our annual Route 66 Tour will start in Scottsdale then lend you an opportunity to live “Take It Easy” by the Eagles and “Stand on the corner of Winslow, Arizona”.  We will then head west on as much of the Mother Road as possible and end the night in historic Williams.  The next morning, we will roll through Ash Fork and head into Seligman for breakfast, the town that inspired the original Disney movie, “Cars”.  After breakfast we will continue on Route 66 and make stops in Hackberry, Kingman and historic Oatman where Clark Gable and Carol Lombard spent their wedding night.  We will then head for Laughlin, NV and the Colorado Belle for a stop for the night.  On Sunday morning, we’ll get up early and head to a more modern Route 66 attraction, Topock66 for breakfast.  From here,  you’re on your own to head back home via the route of your choosing.
