Ride takes you the the farming communities of El Paso and the ride parallels the USA Mexico border . Lots of farms animals crops, pecan trees, irrigation canals. Spanish Missions and the small farming communities are a must see
Great ride lots of turns and tight narrow road are flat throughout ride. Because one goes through the farming communities back roads traffic is very low, but road conditions can be unpredictable during our rainy. Not recommended to be on if you're in a hurry.
Early part of the the ride has many great places to stop, Two Spanish Missions, lots of local eateries and beverage stops
