The November breakfast ride to Fountain Hills started out as a very brisk ride at about 48 degrees when I pulled out of the garage.
The extra layers added warmth to me & the heated seat warming my butt made for a comfortable ride east into the rising sun. Due to a few road closures the 101 was a bit busy for a Saturday morning and of course the few drivers that feeling the need for speed.

Greetings fellow riders!
This month’s breakfast was held at “The Farm”. This suggestion came from my friend Sebastian.
I left early from my house and the ride was a little cool, but it was well worth it. This sweet gem is located in south Phoenix.

The trip to breakfast started early for me as I felt like I was riding to New Mexico from my West Valley home in Buckeye. The good news was that it was a nice and clear morning with fairly moderate temperatures. Favorable conditions for my 80 mile jaunt to Tortilla Flat!
It had been quite a while since I last made the trip. In the earlier days of the club, we did an annual trip up there on New Year’s Day. Unpredictable weather eventually put a damper on that tradition. In more recent years, we’ve scheduled mid-summer breakfast meetups there, but it’s been a while.

The thought when selecting Mamma’s Kitchen in Dewey was that the temperature would make for a nice cool ride out then smoking hot back into town. However, this monthly breakfast was set to be a bit different than usual due to this Monsoon season being more productive than the past few years. As the days leading up to this breakfast produced quite a bit of rain & flooding for many of us throughout Maricopa County.

The monthly Breakfast meeting was beginning to grow even before the event began as we had over 20 pre-registered participants via AZRATPACK website!
Friendly reminder to pre-register via the website as it lets us know how many people are planning to attend an event. This allows us the time to contact the Restaurant in advance to let them know that a large group will be descending upon them for breakfast on Saturday so they can prepare the appropriate staff.

This breakfast in June was full of surprises for me as I was not sure if members would be willing to ride on what was an Extreme Heat Warning weekend here in Arizona. A few days before Saturday I checked registrations and we had 3, me being one of them. I called the restaurant any way & in my optimistic view I let them know that a group of about 10 people would be showing up for breakfast on Saturday morning. Also, to request that we each have our own separate check rather than one for the table and they said no problem. The other inquiry was to ensure they offered more than just the Breakfast burrito that was listed on their website and I was assured they had a full breakfast menu.

After a late night out with a few drinks, it was a difficult task to roll out of bed this morning to head over to Surprise to Jim’s Burgers & Eggs. Normally, I probably would have slept in, but since the chair of this event, Dean is off to the SCMA gathering in Rocky Point with a few others, I stepped up to be the point person for this morning’s breakfast. So, I needed to be there!

It was a Beautiful April 9 th morning. Some of us met at Baja gas station to make the ride up to Duzas kitchen in Payson for breakfast.
Rodney and I left a little early to manage parking for all 28 , albeit not 4 am, like Kevin out in Buckeye, or Carlos and Todd also in the West valley, who braved I10 closures and Aliens ….

It was a cold morning heading out to Lake Saguaro for the AZRATPack March Breakfast. At Mt Ord the snowflake was blinking on my dash, it was 36 degrees. The BUSH Hiway is always a beautiful ride. With fewer cars on the road it was a great chance to take in the scenery.

Met up with Todd in Arrowhead as we learned on the last ride that we both live near each other. I asked Todd to lead to Ahwatukee as I am still getting use to the Garmin. We went a different route than when I originally scouted the restaurant the previous month. As it turns out heading down the 101 W to 10 E to get to the 202 was a much quicker route.
