No flats this morning – win! On the road at 7am for our 64 mile ride from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. We rode 27 miles through Albuquerque and up NM313.
Just before we rode on I-25, we had huge breakfast burritos at The Range Cafe in Bernalillo. Then on I-25 for 27 miles, the most miserable freeway riding ever, with no shoulder – several oversize ‘loads’ (i.e. houses) passed us leaving Winona screaming ‘F-you’. After exiting the freeway, we napped for a bit on gravel in the shade.
Getting to the bike shop was an adventure, we ordered an uberx (an suv) and the driver said there was ‘no room for our bikes’ – onto plan B, ask a rando in a truck. Chris Sandoval (which we didn’t figure out his last name until he dropped us off) came to our rescue and drove us there. We’re so thankful and appreciative of his help!
After successfully dropping off our bikes, we’re onto margaritas! Thanks to Bill and Cheryl we enjoyed a deluctable dinner at The Shed.
