Today was our last cycling day on the Trail of the Coure d’Arlene and the weather today was different than our last two days. It was cooler, in the 60s with a strong wind that we got to ride into all day, and scattered rain in the area. Dave was the MVP of team Ring today. He rode in front of me and broke the wind all day long - that saves about 30 percent of effort for me. He was a machine on the front all day long. All of the people we talked to on the path thought the wind was something. I think the normal blowing was 10-15 miles an hour; when it gusted, it had to be 20-25 miles an hour. The only wildlife we saw was a moose far away, and a grey fox right on the trail.
It was quite a 54 mile ride, and we are glad to be in the hotel, showered and reorganized. We start for home tomorrow and will be in Billings, MT tomorrow night.
