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.

CAD $108 plus taxes
