Day 16 – Columbus, NM to El Paso TX – 77.04 miles – Elevation: +823 / -1,089 feet
Today was a 77 mile ride and our last day in New Mexico. There were smiling faces as the buzz in the morning was that we would have tail winds today. Once we were on the road, the group was as excited as kids on Christmas with relatively flat roads and tail winds. We even saw a New Mexico Christmas tree along the way. Next, we start our 19 day grind across Texas. We will be in Texas almost long enough to establish residency.
