I like to bike. I like to see new places. Doing both simultaneously is kind of my new favorite thing to do, so I've taken it upon myself to share it with you, dear reader.

Sonoran Sunshine in the Springtime

My mother lives in Phoenix, AZ, which is a amazing place to have in my back pocket when the majority of the country is draped in Winter. I’ve biked around her neighborhood quite a bit when visiting her, but she and I had never gone on a ride together until my trip to visit her for her birthday this past March.

We took a Sonoran Desert neighborhood tour, courtesy of Arizona Outback Adventures.  The tour was was an easy enough that my mom (who is somewhat new at cycling) and I were both able to complete it with no issues.  We lucked out and were the only two people on our tour.  Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and taught us a lot about the history of Scottsdale and the ecosystems of the Sonoran desert.  The desert really has a beauty that is all its own, and shouldn’t be missed, and makes for a truly delightful morning.
