Sunrise Over Cattle Chutes
I rode through a 58 mile section where there were no services, so I had to carry extra water and food to keep me going. It was a very peaceful ride...nice roads...minimal traffic. It was made even nicer by a crossing tailwind.
Early Morning Irrigation
I stopped for lunch at a small cafe in Nickerson...
...and enjoyed the special for the day, meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy, peas and a roll. The waitress was even kind enough to refill my waterbottles with ICE water!! WooHoo!! What a special treat!!
