The ride from the border to Thatcher started out with the first leg being a 20 mile winding road uphill and downhill. We had a great time being together. I felt great!
We arrived at 3 Way Arizona and I knew what was ahead of us. Just a couple weeks earlier Jordan and I had come out to that point and I successfully made the 7.8 mile hill. This time was different. I didn't have the energy I needed. Shane was with me and he told me to just take it slow and steady but at any time if I felt I needed to stop and take a break I could, and if need be even get in the SAG Wagon and not do the hill at all. It didn't take long for me to decide that the SAG Wagon was the better option. So we put my bike on top of it and then I rode with Ed and Mona, the SAG team that day. Mona is a hoot of fun and made it very fun for me.
At the top of the hill I was able to get back on my bike and we descended down to the Gila Valley. It was downhill, some flat, and windy.
We had a great welcoming crew to greet us!
