There was always a second dream tied to the first of biking across America: writing a book. Click the front cover of Under a Triumphant Sky to obtain a copy of my memoir. In it you'll enjoy all of my stories in detail.

Bike Across America Route
Highway 60 is an isolated road between Datil and Socorro. At one point, I stopped and snapped this picture of the view to the west.
Dave Ortiz in New Mexico
Eventually Dave caught up with me. He stopped right on the highway -- no worries about causing a traffic jam. :)
Very Large Array, New Mexico
We biked past the Very Large Array.
Very Large Array, NM
Four years later, I would visit this site and walk around the premises. Here are my photos of the Very Large Array.

Dave Ortiz Bicyclist
My buddy Dave was the only person to ride along with me on this bike tour. Dave and I have done a lot of riding together. Here are a few of our outings: South Fork to Creede, Biking Around Telluride and Salida / Buena Vista (Round Trip).

Dave took many photos of me. The second one was me on the phone at a gas station in Magdalena.
San Antonio, New Mexico
With the ride finished and me settled in San Antonio, New Mexico, I loved this t-shirt. I should have bought it! :p)
