I decided to …

Quote for the day: “Nothing is too much trouble if it turns out the way it should.” — Julia Child
Steve got up at 3am to catch a flight from Sarasota, FL to El Paso. So we decided we should also get an early start, and I rolled out of Fort Hancock at 6:15am. Dark.

I rode south about a mile and picked up State Road 20, a small road that parallels I10.
It was cold! I had on plenty of clothes, but got chilled anyway. I thought I would warm up if I pedaled harder, and that didn’t work, but I knocked out some miles quickly.
This route was definitely more scenic. The route goes through several small towns (Acala, Tornillo, Fabens, and Socorro), and lots of …
