Globe, Az to Thatcher, Az (76 miles)

We're down to four riders again now as Blaise is heading back to Phoenix to get a bike with gears - the idea of tackling the upcoming 8300 foot pass mustn't have sounded too good on a fixie! He plans on catching up with us again later in our ride, fingers crossed.

Then first twenty miles of the day where through an Apache Indian reservation, during which we stopped at a stall by the side of the road to try out fry bread. Apparently it's called fried dough on the east coast - we felt the need to try both the bean and cheese one and the honey and sugar, yum!

Shortly after we bumped into two Malaysian guys who are riding their bikes around the world - apparently they've ridden 14k miles already.

Another 50 miles through the fairly flat desert and we made it to our destination; an RV park in Thacher.
