Day 17: Van Horn, TX to Somewhere Else in TX

Today we rode from Van Horn, TX to about 30 miles west of Fort Stockton, TX, which was 81.5 miles. We were aided along by a tailwind and finished the ride in just over 4 hours of riding time. Originally, our route had directed us to the south, to Fort Davis, but the route appeared excessively hilly and the state park there was full, leaving us without a place to stay, so we re-directed on a flatter route towards Fort Stockton. Abi had yet another flat tire, this time less than a 1/2 mile from the exit where we were meeting Josh for lunch–so she babied it “home” and changed it at the truck. The roads were very smooth for the most part, and it was an overwhelmingly good day to be riding a bike.
