The temperature at the start was a rather chilly 37 degrees so I wore arm warmers, a wind breaker and full finger riding gloves but quickly shed those at the first SAG stop.
|On the first part of the trip we rode about 8 miles before seeing a car. The prairie grass and fields seemed endless.....|
|.....but Tucumcari was still a long way away.....|
|At the first SAG we got official credit for reaching the 1000 mile mark!!!|
|On the fast descent, a quick stop for pictures and checking tires for wires.|
|I think these friends were thinking 'what in the world are those crazy people doing??'|
|A 0.7 mile, 8 - 10 % grade at the 66 mile point. Much like training east-to-west on Serrano back home.|
|Had to stop to record this beautiful red rock and green tree formation.|
|Finally at the hotel. Get this tired 'bum' off that saddle!!!|
