We woke up to stars that would not quit and 34’. The sun was rising and popping off the mountains pink AND the coyotes were howling and yipping. There are no words.
Bubba HOW do you do it ?
We did -surprise – another uphill grind to a little store that sold farm feed hardware and snacks. They opened up just for us. It was truly in the middle of nowhere. We then had a solo 30 stretch to Hachita . The town was abandoned due to the RR stopping. The population was C2C riders and sag team.
The stretch had a beefy headwind and my least favorite concept Continental Divide. After a brief down that was impeded by big wind I did the swearing mph to the lunch.
I threw my bike bottles in the air and demonstrated z middle fingers to the wind and the C….. Divide word.
All riders in place at the time were put in cars to get to the Deming hotel.?Our scheduled overnight in Columbus would not allow us into the town.
There was simply not enough day left to finish and take the 40 mile car ride to Deming.
The decision was made to stop riding Saturday and high tail it to El Paso to end.
The staff have been incredibly helpful in dealing with the logistics of the interruption.
I am high tailing it home with Flo Rida in a rental car. Dinner on the road was gas station delights.
Love to all, Be safe.
