Rode the 105 miles to Amarillo, Texas in 7:55. Mostly farmland with minimal climbing and so humid in the morning.
Around mile 30, we continued on the I-40 frontage road we had been riding… And then it turned into dirt. The dirt was fine at first, then the rocks got bigger, the washboards appeared along with the wet deep sand. Not the ideal situation for a long day. We rode the 16 miles on dirt, cleaned out our shoes and continued into Texas – the forth state!
