Day 3: Live Oaks Springs to Calexico – 63 miles
I’ve never been this cold in my life. Riding in high winds is tough enough but mother nature decided to throw sleet, hail, and snow at us too. Exhilarating and scary. Now we’re off the mountains. Setting up camp right next to the Mexican border.
Day 4: Calexico to Yuma – 64 miles
The sun is out and 50 degrees feels warm. Did you know it’s illegal to ride on the highway? Now I do too. Parts of the road are almost too rough to ride on. Long stretches of barren desert.
