Learning from yesterday’s challenges, we decided to take a break from the Trans Canada highway and find some gentler options.
At the outset the wind is still in our face, but the gentle bend in our route will eventually work in our favour.
Jim and I ride together today. Usually, we ride at our own paces, and I spend my time doing creative things like writing song lyrics (that I forget by the end of the ride). Today we chatted about a few things, including a more refined media message for our tour.
Abernathy is a pleasant surprise. Nice little village with friendly people
At camp tonight in Abernathy, we were invited to join a fire for a chat. Two local families were a hoot to talk with. One lady is a drone enthusiast, and I thought that would be our topic for the evening (“droning on”?), but Mike is curiously quiet on the subject. I did hear this: why is Saskatchewan so windy? Because Alberta sucks and Manitoba blows.
Sounds like we better skip Manitoba.
P.S. Just heard that the City of Cornwall, Ont wants to host us with a community ride along and event. This is wonderful, and in keeping with the wonderful precedent set in Kindersley, the best way to connect with people. If other communities want to come on board, please reach out to us at info@SpinningWheelsTour.
