Heavy dew at wake up time.
Plan today is to ride the rest of the Cuyuna trails, do my wash, take a shower, grocery shop, then drive a good ways towards Medora, ND. It all worked. Plus I listened to the Mariners game on XM to hear Felix’s perfect game. One of only 23 such games in baseball history.
I rode from camp on trails I rode yesterday. I crossed the highway to the more technical trails. More examples of well designed and built trails. Shorter length here. Someday i will really learn how to G out the bermed turns. saw 2 riders.
Amusement park riding. The trails are fun to ride. If only the CCC set out to build their trails this way the country would have miles of these kind of trails and I would wonder what a technical feature was.
The couple i met on the trail told me Crosby has a laundromat. I supported it.
Yesterday I encountered a solo 40ish woman riding a rim brake bike. She was beaming from her ride. She was an advocate b4 the trails were built. Local. She at first doubted her ability to ride yet she bought her bike. She surprised herself and is digging on her work. The couple I met today were locals just new to riding because of the local trails. Great to see all these riders using the trails and prolly doing some business in town.
Clean clothes, my wash day is predicated on 6 pairs of liner shorts. Six days since last Wed. 6 out of 7 days riding. The clothes line at the bed head board is filled up w/ drying bike clothes.
I caught a shower @ Crosby park.
Grocery shopped @ Cub Foods in Brainerd.
Headed west driving back roads. Drove thru a windy rain storm. Rain quit but wind remained strong from the NW, sometimes on my nose.
Made FT Ransom SP south of Valley City. Chilly night. Camping here for the night.
I have my 6 month dental session w/ my dentist in Spokane on Sept 12. I will prolly travel thru MT catching rides some of which I have previously ridden.
Tomorrow is Medora, ND. Find that on your map. Dakota bikes has worked well for me in procuring tires. 2 day delivery from QBP in Minneapolis.
