While your friends back East are giving the weather a big, fat, middle-fingered salute, youre chillin in this wonderful AZ weather. And since youre a nice guy and all, youre thinking of all the ways to piss off your frosty pals even more. Heres a good one: Tell them youre participating in the Mountain Biking at Phoenix Mountains Preserve event. Then rub it in by saying youll be riding alongside a park ranger on an eight-mile in-and-back jaunt through the serene desert park. You might lose some pals, but, hey, youll get some exercise.
