Day 8 Eloy, AZ to Tucson, AZ
Wow, what a day!!! This was probably the second coldest day so far. Our ride started out from a cemetery in Eloy, we could see snow on the mountains and the wind at that point was in our face. We headed East on I10 until we got pulled over by johnny law, guess we weren't supposed to be riding on the interstate. He kindly advised us to take a frontage road which worked out to be a better option. The wind changed direction and was at our backs. As we got further into our ride we could we see a nasty storm front at the base of the mountains. We had brief moments of snow, hail and rain but we didn't let it stop us. The highlight of our ride was an exit sign we rode by as we entered into Tucson, it said Miracle Mile. A big thanks to Ryan and Matt for joining us on such a chilly ride.
We ended the night with an interview at a local Tucson new station, KOLD News 13.
