Day 3: Calexico, CA to Wellton, AZ

The weather was perfect today! The wind was helping us out for most of the ride today so we covered a solid 96 miles!

Today was an adventure :) Matt and I got pulled over by a policeman on the freeway because we weren't supposed to be biking there. Luckily the guy was really nice and let us off without a ticket and even gave us directions on how to get where we were going. We had to slip through a barbed wire fence to get over to the right road.

The worst part of the day was going over really bumpy roads. It felt like a vibrating massage chair but it was more violent, it didn't feel good, and there wasn't a stop button. My hands/wrists hurt from holding on so tightly going over all of them.

The best of the day was getting interviewed by reporter Chris McDaniel from Yuma Sun newspaper. He talked to us about our bike trip and took some pictures of us. Here's the link to the article: http://www.yumasun.com/news/research-78640-diabetes-matt.html

We're tired, but all in all it was a fantastic day, and we had a lot of answers to prayers! And we made it to Arizona!
