Question: Have you ever biked from Alamogordo, New Mexico to Cloudcroft, New Mexico?

It's quite a climb, isn't it? 4,300 feet in elevation in 21 miles.

Well, a friend who's biking across America recently did that ride, and I said, "We should have a special club for those of us who've done it, ha ha."

And then I got to thinking and made a Facebook group:

If you've done the ride, please join!

I've just done it many times in the car. If I was back at the Consulate in Juarez, I would definitely try it.

I have done it by car as well. Closest on a bike was Las Cruces to White Sands while I was at NMSU. That was enough of a handful, as poorly equipped as I was on that old 10-speed!

Ahhhh ... two people who drove it.

At least you got to enjoy the scenery.

Yes, Robert did it.

Currently, he and I are the only members in the group.
