Today’s ride was 62 miles.
I left Jacumba Hot Springs just after 8am this morning. It rained earlier in the morning and I wanted to wait until the pavement was dry before I started descending out of the mountains. I was also a little concerned about the strong winds that blow through the passes.
As I entered Seeley the condition of the road improved significantly. I made a short stop in Seeley to get some water and then continued on. I arrived at the Best Western Plus just after 2pm. The elevation of Brawley is 112 feet below seas level.
South of Brawley. Lots of farming and irrigation canals.
I had Chinese food for dinner tonight. I cracked open my fortune cookie. The little slip of paper said “you will be rewarded for your efforts.” I hope so.
