Weather and scenery were both outstanding. One advantage of riding solo is that I can stop anytime I want to get a picture. Four of us started the brevet at 7 am, but I could only stay with the group for a couple of miles. There is a long gradual climb before entering Fort Huachuca, and it is best for me to just settle into a cadence and not worry about the other riders slipping off the front.
Tomorrow's ride is the Bisbee-Gleeson loop, with 70 and 100 mile options.
|This tiny airport still rates the word "International" in its name. This serves as the turn around point for the 200K brevet.|
|White tailed deer watched me as I stopped for a drink of water|
|Finished the 200K in daylight (just under 11 hours elapsed)|
