I want to let everyone know the Domenic Malvestuto Memorial Ride is set for next Sunday, October 6th.
This is a Memorial ride dedicated to Domenic Malvestuto, to celebrate everything he has done for cycling in Arizona, and the many people he has had a positive impact on along the way. This ride will start at Western Star Park in Ahwatukee, and we will ride for approximately 15-20 miles around the surrounding area. We will meet at Western Star Park at 6:45am, and the group will leave at 7am.

If the map link doesn’t work (yeah, it happens), hit up the Facebook link. Most of you Arizona baller cats already know where Western Star Park is. I remember going there just about every Sunday for the Weekend World Championship Ride Around The Mountain for a couple of years. Every town has a ride like that. This was ours.
I spent a few years of my life working for this man and his wife. By a “few years” I pretty much mean about ten. I missed the Domenic Malvestuto Memorial Ride in 2012 as my wife and I had already committed to taking the girls to Disneyland the same weekend. I feel stupid even typing that, but that’s what happened. Pics or it didn’t happen, right? Boom.
Yep. That was me last year right in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle . I carried that jersey in my backpack all day. You could say my mind was in two places. You could say that, and it would be an understatement.
This year I plan on flying the colors here in Arizona.by
