Travelling the U.S. by Bike

7/04 - Day 35: Ordway to Eads

Saturday July 4, 2009, 62 miles (100 km) - Total so far: 2,069 miles (3,329 km)

I left Ordway this morrning at 7:30a.m., after an average breakfast at one of the local eateries. I new right away that the wind was not going to be in my favor as I headed east on the 96.

This line of empty cars spans 15 miles. Maybe Colorado ought to convert these to prison cells.

David Shuey is riding across the country for the Arthritis Foundation. We kept each other company as we fought the head winds for 60 miles.

Here are 3 west bound travellers from Germany, clearly enjoying the tailwind they have today.

The terrain was flat as a pancake, and if it wasn't for the wind, it would have been a good day. One of the Germans said the forecast for tomorrow is for more of the same. We'll see.

At 40 miles, this gas station in Haswell, CO. came at a good time.

David and I were both in need of water when we pulled into Haswell.

The typical scenery, such as it is, of the day.

With Kansas on the horizon, the scenery won't improve much for the next week or so.

I pulled into the city park at Eads around 3:30p.m. Shortly thereafter, I met up with, from L-R:
Chris #1, Pete, Scott, Andy, Chris #2.

Both Chris's are from Dallas, heading up to Vancouver.
The others are from upstate New York, riding along the Trans Am route from San Francisco.

One of these boys celebrated the 4th a bit too much, as I heard someone barking at the bottom of a trash can shortly after midnight.

Oh, the carnage of the college youth.

Unless something goofy happens, I should enter Kansas tomorrow. I think the next overnight town will be Tribune, KS.
