Cumulative mileage: 56
Thanks to Billy Mock, I was able to end my shakedown ride back at my tent at the KOA in Clayton, NM. The ride itself went well. I found and fixed a couple of kinks – my right crank worked itself so loose it about fell off. I put it on better. I got a flat tire riding around town yesterday. It was just a tiny hole, and I patched it, but those new patches are air seeps, so it was flat again this morning. Loath to jettison a tube so early in the ride, I filled it up and it lasted the entire ride. I’ll do that until it gets old or I get a hole worthy of a new tube. Tomorrow I’ll begin the ride west toward Springer, New Mexico, on I-25. It’s 180 miles away, with a stretch of dirt road, so could take three or four days.
