Fort Davis to Marathon 55 miles

This was a good ride to recuperate from yesterday’s ride. I know my legs were still tired and I expect others were also. The other item was our rear-ends. It was hard to set in the saddle for a little while but the pain soon resided.

The ride was fairly ease with most of the ride being downhill. There were a few easy climbs and this will be the norm at least until we reach Del Rio.

One thing bought the ride into focus for me today. We rode by a memorial for a rider that lost his life while riding his bike. It is apparent that it was due to a drunk driver. This rider would have been the same age as me.

This just reminds us to be aware of the cars and drivers around us. The three of us always call out to each other when cars or trucks are coming behind us. Also we are careful when crossing intersections.
