Abi started out the morning by waking up to her third flat tire of the trip–a small pinhole had caused her tire to go flat while still on the bike rack. But we were soon off and riding, steadily ascending a gradual grade for most of the day. We stopped for lunch in Duncan, Arizona, and shortly afterwards, at about 40 miles into our ride, crossed the New Mexico state line. State #3! Our entrance into New Mexico preceded a generous tailwind, helping us along for the last 28 miles of our ride into Lordsburg, New Mexico, where we met Josh for the day.
