After 53 1/2 miles of biking from Deming  to Hatch, New Mexico, John and Tyler stumbled into Sparky’s Burger Joint. Sparky’s is known for its green chile burgers, with the help of the Hatch chiles (claimed to be the best in the world). But, on this particular day, it wasn’t the burgers that caught the weary riders’ eyes.  It was the Apple and Pecan Pie a la Mode that the riders couldn’t resist!  After heating their slices of heaven and plopping a generous portion of ice cream on top, John and Tyler sat down to enjoy their much-deserved treat just in time to hear the local band play several tunes in a rockabilly style – tunes such as “La Bamba,” “The Fireman,” and “I Love this Bar.”  The riders certainly marked this day as a great success.  You just can’t beat finding a gem like Sparky’s in a small town like Hatch!
