The official route of BAK Day 1 was from Johnson City to Sublette, and was about the second half of my full day's century ride. My run to the border and back is documented in the previous gallery for Johnson City. A good spaghetti lunch in Ulysses came none too soon after all that riding. The old carbon black plant near Santana was an interesting landmark that I had noted on Google Maps before the ride.

My complete GPS-mapped ride report for BAK Day 1 can be read at Garmin Connect. Note that my little Forerunner's battery died at about 98 miles; I have an Endomondo trace from my phone as a backup for you doubters!
