Le Tour de U.S. 2014 | Day 25

July 28, 2014

Mandan-Jamestown

. Conti breakfast. I went back to the room and found my back tire flat. Quick change and we were on the road by 9. Late start for a big day ahead. Francois directed us through a labyrinth of back roads that bypassed Bismarck and we found Hwy 10. By noon we had ridden 60 km and we had lunch at a diner in Driscoll. We ordered cheeseburger deluxe's, the lettuce, onion and tomato came after the burger on a side plate. Odd. We continued onto Steele and found that our Hwy 10 runs out of pavement so we bought some snacks and took to the 94. Quite a variety of rumble strips on the shoulder which gave us an extra challenge riding the last 100 km. The number of "flat" animals on the road and shoulder is quite astonishing. Coyote, raccoon, skunk, and many birds of various sizes. It appears that no one cleans up road kill here, they just wait for them to return to the earth. We arrived in Jamestown, great name, around 5:45 and found our motel. Nice place with a pool and decent wifi, which is not common. had great food in the restaurant and then walked to the grocery store for supplies. Back to the motel for family facetime, journal and bed.
