We left the beautiful Gage Hotel in Marathon, Texas and rode 55 miles to a town (not sure it is a town since most of the businesses are closed) of Sanderson, Texas. Just when you think the motels can’t get worse than Ft. Hancock, BINGO!!! Gross is an understatement. ….But it was this or ride another 110 miles to Del Rio, our ride for tomorrow. The ride today was another headwind, same desert landscape, and I was frustrated to say the least, or just tired. I guess I am allowed a hard day, but the gross motel doesn’t help.. Tomorrow is another day and I will try and refocus!!
The positives are, my bike buddies are really nice, it’s not raining, nice temperature, and most importantly, I have been getting great support from those of you supporting my ride for Alzheimer’s. That said, a good sleep and I will do my best to ride 110 miles (my longest ride ever) tomorrow to Del Rio.
