Kindersley has one more reward for us. Storms from last night cleared to reveal the most amazing tail wind this morning. This is the fresh powder dump of windy days. If this were a cycling town, all the businesses would be closed until noon, with signs that read “closed for the fresh wind. Come back tomorrow.”
Jim and I start with photos from the local press, and then we play. It is about 80 km to Rosetown, which I do in about 2hrs (keeping an avg pace of 40.9km/hr), and Jim is not far behind.
We then turn 90 degrees to head South, and our glorious tail wind becomes a choppy cross wind. This is harder work but so much better than a head wind. We travel like this for the rest of the day, and I manage to keep an overall avg speed of 33.8km/hr for the day. But the big story for both Jim and I is our distance of 181 km, one of my furthest distances, Jim’s longest by a wide margin.
The day end with a glorious downhill ride into a gorgeous valley which shelters Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park.
Tomorrow, tune into Global Television’s Regina morning show to catch the Spinning Wheels Tour on TV. 8:20 am Central Time (10:20am EST). Don’t blink, as it’s just 4 minutes.
