Browning to Chester

Notes from today:

  • up at 6:15am, had above average continental breakfast at hotel
  • on the road by 7:30
  • we had a nice strong tail wind.
  • rode 55 KM to Cut Bank in 1 hour 40 minutes before taking a break at McDonalds.
  • rode next 40 KM to Shelbi in an hour where we enjoyed a lunch break
  • rode another 40 KM and took a short break at the side of the road so Carl could replace his slow-leaking tube
  • last 28 KM to Chester took less then 45 minutes
  • after many days in the mountains it is quite nice to ride fast on flat roads.
  • the scenery was lovely. Vast open fields that seem to go on forever with large mountains in the distance.
  • while walking back to our hotel room after dinner we heard a cat crying quite loudly. We investigated and saw a tiny white kitten up in a tree. James reached up and rescued the cute little kitty and when he put it down on the ground the kitten started following us back to our hotel. We purchased a can of tuna inside the hotel store and we laid it down near where we found the cat. The kitten seemed quite pleased.


  • Scully McBain: Sounds like Greenie didn't help with that poor little cat. Well….there goes his Vernon KOMs! - posted over 5 years ago
  • Frank Holdem: Greeny provided some moral support and showed genuine concern about the kitten. - posted over 5 years ago
  • Frank Holdem: Greenie has a soft spot for cats. Maybe just take half Vernon KOMs - posted over 5 years ago
