Unfortunately we cancelled the 2018 Texas Adventure Ride today due to the forecasted bad weather in Junction through Saturday.
I am mailing the commemorative baseball cap to everyone who registered and will be refunding the difference between the cost of the cap and rally registration. If you registered and paid for the event please email me your name and address so I can mail your hat to you. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The most surprising thing I saw during this entire trip was this big reservoir. I was riding along, through the desert, minding my own business, when I rounded a corner and saw this. Hmmm…why is this here? There aren’t any town close by. Or anything else that I could see that would need a big reservoir. Yet, here it is.
The character of the road on the western half of this route is noticeably different than the eastern half. The biggest distinction is a lot more dirt and less rock. The eastern half has lots of rock. The western half has long sections of dirt and sand. Both sections are fun but it makes the riding more interesting when there is lots of variation in the riding environment, which this route offers.
