Journal Entry
Date: June 22
Day2: Saturday
Departure: Las Cruces, NM
Arrival: Truth or Consequences, NM

Distance:  80-miles
Climate:  Pleasant morning ride. High 90s when finished at 12:30pm
Overnight:  Full Gospel Tabernacle Church

Early start to beat the heat.  The group cleaned the church and were on the road by 6:30am.  It was a glorious morning to ride through the Rio Grande River Valley.  Flat, moderate tailwinds, and relatively cool temps had most groups doing 21-mph pacelines and averaging over 18-mph for the day.  Lots of pueblo architecture along the way.  This is the farming area of NM and everything grows on this valley.   We are going tubing later today on the Lazy River.  Should be fun.
