I don’t have a lot of time to go into the detail about this day as I normally do. But here is a brief summary.

I took my time and road all around Sioux Falls, which surprisingly is a really cool city. It’s very clean and very bike friendly. However, no one wears helmets here, no one!


I made it into Minnesota via riding on the back roads. It was nice to be able to ride my bike off of the interstate for a change.


The weather was noticeably more humid compared with Montana and Wyoming. I had to drink a lot more due to sweating a lot more.

I finished the day with installing those thorn resistant tubes I got back in Billings. They are a lot heavier, but if they won’t get flats, then they may be worth it.
