Day 79 – Shadow Mountain, AZ to El Mirage, AZ

Rode today from my Phoenix host’s house in the Shadow Mountain region to my new host’s house in El Mirage near Surprise. Gene and Dawn Zigler rode their tandem bike with me using the Canal bike trail a good part of the way. This was after enjoying a great french toast breakfast that Gene prepared.

The ride was very pleasant and it was nice having Gene and Dawn for company. It made time go by much faster and we could talk most of the way since we could ride side by side. After a short visit with Juana Apaza, my new host, they took off to ride back home before it got much hotter.

Both Gene and Dawn and Juana are members of Warm Showers, an organization that is set up to help bike riders with a place to stay when on long road trips. Gene called Juana last night and arranged to have her host me today. I also talked with Juana and told her how to find my blog so she could find out more about me and feel more comfortable about hosting me.

Tomorrow is already set up for me to stay at the fire station in Wickenburg.
