SEAT Lunch at the General Kearny Inn,
The ride up to Kearny via AZ Hwy 77 is one of the best rides traveling north out of Tucson. The Biosphere is along this route and is worth a visit; and the small towns of Oracle and San Manuel are interesting side trips.
The loop from Kearny up to Superior, east to Globe and then back to Tucson is an excellent day ride. The old downtown of Globe has an excellent Mexican restaurant and a bit of shopping as well. We will be doing Globe for lunch later this year.
Taking advantage of the good weather we had 52 members and guests join us for lunch. The previous time we lunched at the General Kearny we had pretty good service. Unfortunately this time around not everyone got served. That really bothers us as the lunch may not be the only reason we get together but it is certainly one of the top ones. Sorry if you were one of the unlucky ones who didn't get the best of service.
Still, the weather was great, the roads were terrific and the tire kicking was most excellent. The new members who made the ride were a bit surprised at the number of SEAT members who came out. This is a riders club! We ride!
The next lunch will be south of Tucson. Have to keep the balance and keep a bit of variety in the roads we ride. Remember we are always looking for interesting places to gather for lunch. Let us know if you come across one.
Come join us in Bisbee next month. We are looking forward to seeing you.
