Day 72 – 7 miles east of Globe, AZ to Superior, AZ

Started out from the Apache Gold Hotel/Casino, see picture, this morning with an uphill ride to Globe. I stopped there for snack and to check with Chief Pryor of the Superior Fire Department about being hosted. He was agreeable to the idea but had to get approval from the city staff who said no. I don’t know what the reason was.

Continued on through a lot of climbing until getting to a spot called “The Top Of The World” where I pulled over to a small roadside store. Had an A & W root beer complements of the owner, a retired Navy man. Just one more short climb after that then downhill all the way to Superior.

The Chief had given me the name and contact to “Warm Showers”, an association that helps bike riders, but decided I needed more than a warm shower so checked in at the Copper Mountain Motel. See picture below.

Tomorrow is already arranged with Chief Farber of the Gold Canyon Fire Station near Apache Junction.

As suggested I want to report that I have not had any problems with the ElliptiGO. I do the daily maintenance, which just takes a few minutes and it takes care of me.
