Matthew Lee biking through the Storms

Racer update about:
Hi, Matthew Lee calling here from Grants, NM. Its 10 after 5, I think its Monday. I just pulled into town. I’m at the Grocery store resupplying. I forget what an interesting town Grants is. True Americana. Welding shops on every corner. Fireworks stands. Dilapidated buildings. Pretty depressed. But for some reason, I like it. Anyway, I had some really tough head winds coming into town. There are monsoonal type storms working their way north daily now, and they are causing trouble. I’m working through those. I was hoping to be in Pie Town tonight but that is still 70 miles away so I’ll probably be sleeping on the Pie Town road. Alright, Hope everyone else is doing well. Cheers.

Pie Town Road then the home stretch

Wow! Very impressive Matt! The home stretch is right around the corner (almost) Looks like 19+ days if the weather allows. I'm cheering you on!!!


Yahoo!!! Unbelievable!! Routin for ya!

The Gila is Next!

Hey Matthew! Great going once again! Grants is a garden spot eh? I like the place too. The Uranium Cafe was the best place for breakfast...don't know if its still there or not.
Enjoy the Chain of that part of New Mexico. Beautiful! The after that is the Gila! Time to get Gila Proven! Yeeehaw!


Hope the weather lets up and is kinder to you tomorrow. I am keeping all of you in my prayers. Reuben has great respect for you and that means you earned it. I hope you will keep in touch with him. Look for the beauty in the storm. It is there. Be safe and well.
