July 15, 2020 to Grand Forks
My thinking this day was to get to Grand Forks as quickly as possible. Grab a cheap motel to catch up on photos, videos. And recharge the batteries literally and figuratively.
Take an easy day. And a late start the following day.
The heat was getting to me.
The scenery changed again, now mixed farming.
One downside here is an endless series of ‘cow gates’ … though you never see any cows any where near.
My brother and I recently added a kickstand to the bike — a big help when getting on and off frequently.
Some sections of the Great Trail allow motor vehicles, this one included. A drag for cyclists.
Some don’t leave.
Wanting to check into the motel early I skipped the last 25km of trail into Grand Forks, taking the highway instead. It was all downhill. And I zoomed in.
