Le Tour de U.S. 2014 | Day 11

Floating over North Dakota

Lessons learned from Montana - the wind dictates the ride. Todays story looked grand.

Morning: Replaced slow leak tube for fast leak one. - Patched by the man who hates toast himself. Selected tube with only 2 patches and patched. Tire ready, early start at 10:30am

40km took less effoert than morning coffee. Stopped in Medora - Dakota Cyclery. Good cycle shops are harder to find than good stories about Browning MT. All I could eat Buffet, left me fat, slow, and sleepy for the remainder of the day.

Good thing the wind blew me to Dickinson, 60km down the road. Despite the easy ride, went through 3 bottles of water and one Peace Ice Tea (this tea is the bomb) just to keep mouth from drying out.

Decent Hotel here at the Oasis Motel.
