Amarillo: Day 2 – Punctures!

Tuesday 25th June 2019, Amarillo.
One of those frustrating days that happen from time to time. Having swapped the tyres last night and then got a puncture which I fixed this morning when I got on the bike to do some sightseeing both tyres were flat!!! So I repaired both of them and cycled to the bike shop to get the brake repaired. They fixed the brake with a new part and also put a new tyre on the back wheel leaving me with the less worn tyre on the front (they only had one suitable tyre in stock).
I shouldn’t really complain. These punctures couldn’t have happened at a better time or place. Could easily have occured crossing the desert or in some of the remote mountains causing me a lot more trouble.
In the sightseeing that I was able to do this afternoon I came across possibly the most bizarre sight on the trip so far. 10 Cadillacs buried bonnet down in a line in the sand and then painted.

As well as fantastic service the Sun Adventure bike shop also provides free beer!
