We had about a 70 mile ride today. It was a slight down hill with a tail wind all the way. We were doing 13 MPH with little effort. We stopped after 16 miles at Hamilton when we saw a espresso shop. They had mounted trophy heads of animals from South Africa. A Huto (?)
We took another route into Missoula, got lost but got to the ‘mothership’ by 2:15
We weighted our bikes, mine weighed in at 80 pounds.
I met Greg Siple who was involved with the original rides in 1977. Also Liam’s Mom, Daphne Cant, who drove from B.C. To visit. She did the 1976 ride as a leader.
