Day 4, April 4
Glamis to Blythe, CA (Riviera RV campground). Last day in CA, crossing the Colorado River into AZ in the morning. I’ll be traveling on I-10 for about 20 miles over a mountain pass, just past Quartsite.
Today was another long day, 6:30AM-2:30PM, and 66+ miles. The roads in the morning were full of steep up and downs, several had to be walked up as they were too steep to ride. Elevations went from about 380 to 1100, then back down to around 250.
The afternoon featured flat roads which was nice, but at 96 degrees and rough textured roads, it was another demanding day. I had a slight headwind all day, but it was welcome, as it kept me a bit cooler.
Stats: 66.6 miles, Max 31, Time 5:44, Avg 10.5
