Day 4: Victorville California to 29 Palms California - 97.3 miles

So Chrssie, what have you seen since you've been in America?  I have seen tarmac.  Lots and lots of tarmiac - lumpy, bumpy, tarmac with cracks so big my front wheel could fall down the hole and very occasionally smooth black tarmac - my new best friend.  Don't ever complain about the roads in England.

I am cycling so hard to try and stay on the back of David's wheel that I don't have time to lift my head.  Apparently today's ride took us through the Lucerne valley of the Mojave Desert.  "You'll love the desert - it's the best part" we'd been told.  God I hope not!!  Stubby shrubs, huge piles of dirt and debris on the roadside and not a living creature in sight.  Still, I rode well today despite the heat and we arrived at our quirky hotel in 29 Palms in the early afternoon. The sore backside saga continues so we promised ourselves an ice cold bath on arrival.  Our treat for the day!  On entering our bathroom we discover there is only a walk in shower.
