3-15-15 Phoenix to Gold Canyon, AZ 60 miles

This was a day after our rest day.  Bikes were repaired (Jill was especially happy!), bodies were recovered, and the route was flat, smooth, cool and beautiful as we rode through Scottsdale.  This is Sunday, and there were many other riders and walkers enjoying the day.  The last 20 miles were very hot and windy, however, and we got practice maneuvering through streets filled with construction.  There was one very strong gust in an intersection that suddenly changed direction, knocking over the saw-horse signs around us! Jude was almost blown into another rider!
