Day 8: Dragoon Rd., AZ to Lordsburg, NM

We made it to New Mexico! And we cranked out another 96 miles. (We must like that number...that's our third 96 miler!)

Matt's best of the day was the cacti we passed in Arizona; they looked like they came straight out of a Dr. Seuss book. My best was that we had the wind at our backs almost the whole day.

I asked what Matt's worst of the day was, and he said, "Maybe that I feel like I just got run over by a train." But in all seriousness, Matt's pretty beat because all day he had to ride the Bianchi without clip-in pedals. It's amazing how much of a difference the bike makes. I was riding Matt's bike and felt like I could have gone another 20 miles or so.

Record breaker of the day: Eight friendly people honked at us!


  1. Matt, you look like you got run over by a train.

  2. I hope you get your better bike fixed soon! Congrats on a great day, despite the lesser bike. Please be safe.

  3. Way to go!! You guys are so amazing!
