It’s that time of year again in Phoenix, Arizona.
With temps well into triple digits (114 degrees today!) - it feels hot enough to melt your face off (think Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) plus no rain in sight - we should all be sipping Mai Tai’s by the pool.
Instead, I think to myself (in no small fit of lunacy):"Why not do a 67 mile Mountain Bike Ride... in August?!”
And so - come August 4th- I’ll be hauling my 51 year old carcass up to Flagstaff, hopping on my bike and taking a little spin to... (dramatic music plays) …the Grand Canyon!
There will be dirt, there will be rock, there will be mud! Nay, mountains! HUGE MOUNTAINS at lung busting elevations –and- all standing betwixt myself and an ever diminishing horizon.
“Why,” might you ask, “Adam, would you do such a thing?!”
Honestly - all drama and masochism aside – this one’s a no-brainer. Why?
Every dollar earned, goes to Marine Relief Charities, which include:
Toys for Tots
Flagstaff Youth Program
You had me at Toys for Tots, but together?! No brainer!
So… if you’d like join in - help put a smile on a kid’s face - now’s your chance!
Suggested donations include $.50, $1 or $2 per mile - or shoot straight to the head of the class with your gift of $100, or $200 or more - no amount is too big or too small.
And not only will anything you contribute be greatly appreciated - it will also be tax deductible. :-)

Otherwise, thanks so much for your consideration -and- contributions!
See you on the mountain!!
