- enjoyed a well-above-average conti breakfast at the Oasis Motel and we managed to hit the road by 7:30am
- the winds today were mostly from the north, so not helpful, but they were relatively light.
- we travelled along the scenic byway that parallels I94 which was a very nice, quiet road, much of which had been recently re-paved.
- shortly after getting started the clouds rolled in and stayed with us the remainder of the day. I was a bit worried about rain but it never materialized.
- at the 80 KM mark we stopped for lunch in Glen Ullin but since it was Sunday the local cafe was not open. So we purchased some food from the Supervalue instead. Trevor, James and I had sandwiches, while Carl had chicken and 5 bananas.
- at the 90 KM mark we ran into an unpaved segment of the highway and while riding this gravel road I hit a patch of deep, loose gravel and fell. I was going relatively slow so it wasn't too bad of a crash. My knee and arm lost of bit of skin, otherwise, all is well. James' tire also fell victim to the gravel. After fixing the flat, we walked the remainder of the way along the gravel road until we reached the entrance to the I94.
- we continued along I94 for about 10 KM before pulling into a rest area for a bathroom break. While there we looked over some of the maps on the wall and learned that the gravel section of the scenic byway would end in about 6 more kilometres. The rest of the scenic byway was all paved very nicely and took us right into Mandan.
Our plan for tomorrow is to cycle 180 KM to Jamestown.
