Ride the Divide - Day 14: Run for the BorderAfter 2665 miles and 14 days, our journey has come to a conclusion. Recent road closures meant changing our destination from Antelope Wells to Columbus, NM. Reaching the nondescript border town meant several miles of pavement and passing an inspection station about 15 miles from the border where we were asked a few questions.

It has been a fantastic adventure and I can’t say enough good things about my riding partner, Dave Wenk. Together we traversed deserts, forests, mountains, waterways, and crisscrossed the Continental Divide countless times. This has truly been an experience I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I am working on an epilogue of “what I learned and what I would do differently” for anyone interested in doing the same type of ride.

Thanks for following along.
