Remember that Christmas gift that involved a year of dates? If not, you can check it out here. This is our first of the 12 Months of Dates.
We decided to bump January’s up a week due to some awesome plans next week and the amazing spring-like weather we’ve had in AZ this week. January’s date was “Let’s Go Ride a Bike.”
We went to The Bicycle Cellar in Tempe and picked up our reserved tandem beach cruiser for the entire afternoon. Yes there was a giddy squeal by Camille to find it was cherry red- a favorite color!
We were both a little worried about riding a bike since it’s been a few years. We’re here to to tell you the expression “like riding a bike” is 100% true.
We rode down Mill Avenue in Tempe and stopped to pick up some lunch to have a little picnic along Tempe Town Lake. Silver Mine Subs is absolutely delicious! We were even thrilled to have tables all along the lake set up for picnics. We made a mental note- there are a ton of cool places and scenic places along the lake all set up to go enjoy food (AKA a date) together at.
Then we spent about 3 hours touring Tempe Town Lake, and other areas in Tempe and Scottsdale via bike. We both commented that neither of us had seen the city like that- even in our time as students or with full-time jobs in the area. There is something about seeing a city on a bike that adds a complete perspective change.
And there was a lot of quality conversation while we burnt all the calories from lunch going several miles down and back again.
We decided that our final stop before our 4-hour rental was up would be to cool down and enjoy some of the world’s best frozen yogurt.
