Day 9: Lordsburg, NM to Las Cruces, NM

We have a new record: 106 miles!

The shoulders on the road were great so we were smoothly sailing pretty much all day. We love New Mexico roads. The wind was just about perfect too.

Haha... both of our worsts for the day was riding through a cloud of flying bugs. We were going too fast to tell what they were (big flies or bees?) but I was screaming for a while afterwards. (And Matt later admitted that he was screaming internally.)


Our best was the 106 miles and that Grandma Gina treated us to a Mexican restaurant that had really good food. It also had big bird cages with parrots, toucans, etc.; fish tanks; and beautiful lights and decorations. Our favorite thing about the place, however, was a really tall guy that was one of the waiters. He told us that he's one of the tallest Mexicans: 6'9"! We couldn't help but ask to take a picture with him. We told him that we were going to put him on our blog, and he said to make sure that we say that he has a deep radio announcer voice too :)

Oh and by the way, check out this news post of us in an El Paso online news page! http://www.elpasonews.org/2012/05/02/bikers-raising-awareness-for-juvenile-diabetes-biking-through-el-paso-on-thursday/

  1. Yes, he's tall ... like Rich Jardine in platform shoes. But he's also HUGE!

    I love the record of 106 miles. Much more, I love you three and your energy for life and adventure.
