These neighborhood exploratory rides were a good decision. Despite the 100°F + temperatures I’ve been getting out on the bike.
Once on, the Cadence stem tells me what to do – a top of it are the words – “keep going” and that is exactly what I do.
Almost everyday so far for 1-2 hours I ride the city streets taking photos, taking notes and minding the cars.
Of course we’ve been to most of them already, but we need photos and there are new ones all the time.
There are some long time staples which are frequented by locals. Richardson’s, Rokerij, The Phoenix Grill for instance plus others.
Uptown Phoenix is changing. New stores, new restaurants, infill projects, remodeling: it’s attracting new residents, but keeping the current ones happy too. I love this area, but I’m biased I live in Uptown Phoenix too.
