Bisbee Ride 2010
View Bisbee Ride 2010 in a larger map
So, it's a three day weekend and I want to escape. There is a little old mining town called Bisbee that's turned into a artist colony mixed with miners who never left the area after the mines closed in the 70's.
Bisbee was once the largest city between St Louis and San Francisco. They called it Little San Francisco and you'll see why.
We headed out of Phoenix to the east. Run for the open roads and away from the superslab busy freeways! Once we got to Florence junction I pulled off to the side of the road and gave my two friends joining me on the trip a smile. I asked if they wanted to take the long way through the mountains and through some other old mining towns. No decision, we were all over it!
We headed for Superior and Globe. As we were ascending through the canyon we saw a car weaving down the road. As we entered a tunnel it veered into the lane of oncoming traffic almost causing a big accident. As we looked at the car we could tell that it was running on the rim!
