At the big house

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 SeƱor 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:
