Track Log for Today

I originally planned to ride another curvy mountain road but I had enough of that yesterday. I decided on fast and straight and left before 6:00AM as I wanted to see the sunrise and needed to get in some miles today. I was rewarded with one of my favorite photos of this trip.
I visited White Sands National Monument then the gravesite of Ham the first chimp in space.
I am staying the same motel we were in last Sunday. I even asked for and received the group rate we had.
The next three days are now just about putting miles behind me until I get home. I plan to eventually post a short 3-5 minutes video of the entire trip that I think everyone will enjoy.
What is 40 to Phoenix ?
Phoenix Arizona is the national headquarters of the GWRRA and many riders turn around at that point and return home. Hence the name "40 to Phoenix".
My goal is to write a blog about each day. I also have a phone app that updates my location on a map on this website every 10 minutes or so. Click
