Sep 5, Pollock, SD, Labor Day…natchPosted: September 5, 2011
Don’t take N. Dakota for granted…she gives and she takes away. Knew I was in for it when I hit the road and couldn’t get out of the granny gear. BIG WIND on the nose. Averaged 7 mph today, so plans changed and I only made half my planned route – 35 mi. today – and I feel like I’ve been drug here behind a car, not ridden here. Plus side, I’m in a neat BnB – redone old train station. Land is getting a bit flatter, but of course they run the road over every hill they have..but I digress. Hopefully winds will abate a bit tomorrow. Pic is of an interesting spot along the road-kind of sums up today’s effort.
