Le Half-Tour de U.S. 2014 | Day 16

July 19, 2014

Whitefish to Browning

Notes from today:

  • a big nail went into my rear tire about 12 KM outside of Whitefish. It tore up the rim tape and caused some sharp metallic edges on the inside of the rim. Took a cab back to town to have it fixed.
  • Trevor broke 2 spokes along the way but he was able to make it to Browning on his weakened wheel. Linda, Trevor's girlfriend, picked up a new wheel in Calgary and drove down to meet us in Browning. Trevor now has a strong Mavic a319 wheel which should be good for the rest of the trip.
  • very strong wind today which was a headwind for most of the first half of the day and then it was a nice tailwind for the 2nd half.
  • we are most definitely in Big Sky country now.
  • will upload some photos after dinner. Wifi is not so good at our motel
