Then came our bicycle cleaning class in the parking lot. Carol used my bike as an example, so I got off easy. My gears and chain were just filthy after our rainy day and the next with dust, so it really needed to get it done. There was red clay/dirt on everything! Like Carol says, riding in the rain is not so bad, but it makes a mess of the chain, gears and cogs!
We are going into the next town of Salome, AZ tomorrow. There will be no internet there, so it will be two days before I can make any entries.
