Who invited the wind to our bike tour? Even with the wind, the riders continued to move forward from hotel to SAG 1, and then SAG 2, before finishing at our hotel in Albuquerque for the evening.

The first part of the day was spent on a 30 mile section of Historic Hwy 66. The sturdy remains of businesses alive years ago still stand as a reminder of how life used to be. Along with the history, new businesses, and an occasional bike path have emerged bringing new revenue and growth.  The road is in very good repair and perfect for cycling.

Tomorrow we’re off to Santa Fe and our second rest day.
