    Glad to ride daily but......

    ...this how boring it really is. 50 mile round trip but this is what it looks like heading home. The top picture is from what one might call my office , from south range , White Sands Missile Range. The road headed up the mountain is the Battan Memorial Hwy (my ride home) between Alamogordo and Las Cruces New Mexico and White Sands National Monument is about 25 miles rith from where I am standing.
    PS it is right at 100 degrees in the pictures.

    Really Square!!
    There are only two sweeping curves in the whole ride , so I must really take advantage!

    Well I too am retired but the Army offered me money to go back to work and I was only 53 so there you go. It does give me the excuse to ride every day.

    Take that beast up to Cloudcroft once in a while and wear the sides of your tires for a change!

    It is nice to ride to work every day no matter how straight the roads are. I commute 35 miles each way to Fort Leonard Wood about 9 out of 10 days. Fortunately for me, there are very few straights.

    You've been to Holloman I see. We just got the first 2 F22 Raptors last monday.
    Cloudcroft is a butte of a ride . I have not made it on anything but the motorhome and not much turn leaning in it!!!
