Palm Springs to the Salton Sea, 03-03-2012

 Dead Fish....
Tired Gary...

Yesterday's ride: 43.84 miles from Vista Chino at the wash in Palm Springs to the Salton Sea near Mecca along the Whitewater River Channel:
I believe that Gary and I are the first to complete this ride of the Whitewater Channel from Palm Springs to the Salton Sea.  This ride across golf courses and CVWD access land is proof the the Whitewater River Trail already exists if access was allowed.  The weather was perfect, though we did nearly run out of water and the last 15 miles were hard for me, being that I usually ride a road bike and this dirt riding proved a challenge toward the end.
