Being lazy is almost an obligation these days. There is so much entertainment out there that you’re expected to consume that people get angry when you don't consume it. If you don’t know what we mean, try telling somebody you never watched Breaking Bad next time you go to a party.
If you’re fed up with being lazy, you might find Tempe Bicycle Action Group’s Science Sunday bike ride to be a nice change of pace. Starting at 2 p.m. at Tempe's Bicycle Cellar, 200 East Fifth Street, Suite 105, engineering expert Robert LaRoche will lead a ride that promises to highlight “the past and future of energy” in the Valley. Be sure to bring a bike, something to eat, and something to write with/on if you’re really into the science part of the deal. Participation is free. More information is available at www.sciencesundayride.tumblr.com.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
