I've been reworking our routes to Dallas. Unfortunately I'm finding portions of existing routes have dirt roads and narrow bridges with no bike lanes. I've fixed them but at the expense of added miles. For example, now our ride from Matador to Seymour has grown to 120 miles. Wait till Don sees this...
Dennis is out washing the van. Next will be lunch and then Don and I will be cleaning and oiling our bikes so that all is ready for tomorrow's roll out.
The routine of riding, checking in to a new hotel, eating out, trying to remember my room number, early to bed, early morning alarm, hotel breakfast, packing and getting ready to go again is tiring but the people we meet along the way and the message we carry make it worth it. I also very much appreciate the support and comments we are receiving on Facebook and on this blog. It means a lot to all of us. Keep them coming!
Here are some shots Dennis has taken along the road, capturing the feel of much of our ride from Moriarty to Clovis, NM ( Day 29) and then on to Plainview, Tx (Day 30). We are lucky to have him with us.
Got to have have train shot!
Happy for some R&R
Day 30: Reaching Plainview, Tx
Welcome to Texas
Trying to avoid the crop duster
Fighting strong cross winds
Yes, it was windy
Just doesn't look right!
