After the camping on the side of the road, we had a nice day of riding through desert flats, Saguaro cactus hillsides into Wickenburg, about 25 miles. It's always rewarding to have to work for a good cup of Joe!
We also rode for a while with two guys Simon and Mike from Oceanside, CA. Thanks guys for the company!
From Wickenburg into the Mega-lopolis of Phoenix, it was time to be very safety-conscious with all of our bright clothes on and helmets. Anyway, our "warmup" week of riding is over and we are feeling good. 400 miles down and 2600 to go!
