I rode from Tempe to Casa Grande today. 52.7 mostly flat miles, but some uphills near the end. I’m staying at a nice Best Western and haven’t yet decided if I want to take a rest day tomorrow or grind on to Tucson and take my break there. I walked up this evening to a sushi place called Señor Sushi. It was good fare and they had Kirin draught beer. Mmmm. Here’s the map from today, you can click on it for details:
Leaving TempeOverpass on the Interstate
Fooled by a building sign. It said home of the Padres and I thought it was something to do with the San Diego Padres, but it’s just a school with the same mascot.
Wound through a lot of pretty subdivisions to get out of Tempe.
Thought I had to climb these mountains. Gulp. The road went through a pass between them instead. Phew. My first tumbleweed spotting. He’s cute, eh? Some sort of monument teepee made out of stone and beer bottle glass.
