Lots more corn and soybean fields today. Like miles and miles. We crossed into Minnesota early this morning. I was expecting 10,000 lakes and pine trees like on their license plates, but it seems the southern part of Minnesota looks a lot like the southern part of South Dakota. I think I'm gonna have to pedal north to see all those lakes.
Something weird has happened. 70 is the new 40, as in miles: a good ride but not that big of a deal. Having said that---it only applies if the weather is good. And if you don't have seven screaming parts on your body. And if your bike is working good. And if you have someone to talk to. And if no dogs chase you and bite you in the calf. And if the pavement is smooth. And...
Anyway, here's today's pics:
A bunch of us in front of Sioux Falls.
A new state!
Minnesota has awesome clouds!
This smoke stack reminded me of every
choo-choo train I drew as a kid.
Gotta love a town that likes postcards.
Our SAG was in a park that was under
six feet of floodwater a few weeks ago.
I love this picture.
This is Sym.
He has hitchhiked all over the world.
Here he is demonstrating perfect form.
A familiar sight at the end of the day.
Tomorrow we ride 110 miles. Even if we have perfect conditions, it's probably gonna be a big deal.
