I organize the AZCC group out here. We were doing rides almost every month, for a couple years and this last year not quite as much. Usually Sunday mornings. This last year we did a a few but I was slacking. There is bunch a good people out here, where abouts are you located?
I am in the far North West of the Valley in Peoria. Between 101 and 303 off 67th Ave. My bike warehouse is in Glendale but I am willing to drive to wherever to go on the rides. I am glad to hear someone is already planning and organizing rides in Phoenix. Just let me know where and when and I will be there.

I miss the contibutions of Gary MC, ,Chitown and Obi wan schiwwnobi to name a few. I think we kind of take for granted that the core members will always contribute but that's clearly not the case. Having been on here for 8 years now I can say the membership ebbs and flows. There's times when it feels like an amazing convergence of like minded people and other times that the chemistry feels off. The break room was quite a place but it's name was misleading unless by break room you mean a place to break chairs over someones head. But it was entertaining to say the least. I had to check out before it was done away with. I understand why people stop contributing and I've thought about joining their ranks but I love this site and can't stay away for too long. I think my record is 2 1/2 weeks.

Sadly passed away last year, and even though I never met the man, and feel like the quality of his posts got condensed once he realized he was living on borrowed time, I miss him dearly.
He was just an interesting guy with a lot of interesting interests.
It doesn’t matter to me who he was out there, because who he was in here, made this a more interesting place.

Also passed away last year.
One of the guys out here, described him as a mentor and father figure.
That right there pretty much tells you how much he meant to the guys that knew him personally.
His passion for this hobby was undying.
So I’m sure his spirit is still here keeping tabs on what’s going on.
Thank you, Phil!
Two people who's contributions helped me so much, so much knowledge and advice, freely given.

Being a member on a few auto forums I see the same thing. Members come, and go. But, those that are truly good folks, and a ready to help freely are genuinely missed when they disappear. Just as it has been in the past, it will be in the future. Although with the lack of knowledge ( but I am trying to learn, I promise) I have to impart I don't think I would be one of that would be missed. :) But, isn't that the way of the world.

You’ve got to love the guys that left the Cabe to join a Facebook group because they got tired of the shenanigans.
Like it was going to be any better over there. Lol!
We call that, a Geographic.
The common denominator is you!
Think about it!

I knew Phil Scott for about 8 years he would come into my store about once a month and we became good friends early on he was telling me about a Dayton Bicycles and I told him I would love to see a picture of his.
a month later he brought down his Dayton Bicycle he restored and gave it to me for a Christmas present he was the most selfless person I have ever met.
