The High Desert Challenge (16 May)

This historical marker just outside Wickensburg is a reminder of how dangerous crossing the high desert can be. In the days of the stagecoach, the Apaches were the source of some very unpleasant situations. In our day and age, crossing the desert by bicycle means keeping hydrated, avoiding sunburn and, above all, pacing yourself. David, Peter, Mark and Emil are ready to take on the challenge.
At the end of the long (116 miles), hot day everyone had arrived safely in Wickensburg. Dinner tonight was in a restaurant close by and sponsered by Cross Roads! Thank you Support Team for the refreshing drinks and snacks, for the ice socks and the help along the road ... and for the wonderful dinner.

Olga took the photo of Diane and me, congratulating Cathy on another great ride.
