Rainy Day in Minnesota
Day 31 – Fargo, ND – Fergus Falls, MN. 88 miles (total miles 1964)
Weather cold- 50 degrees and rainy, slight tailwind
Today we got up and going early because we knew the weather would not be ideal and it wasn’t. It was a day of getting soaked , drying off and getting soaked again. We stopped in Fargo to eat breakfast and parked our bike out-front of the restaurant. We were just getting ready to go when a young lady walked into the restaurant and started to ask us about our bike and our trip. She was a nurse from the local hospital and had just got off her shift, she was very interested in our trip and wished us luck. She said some day she would like to do the same thing.
It was nice to finally get into Minnesota – although it happened with no fanfare – no welcome to Minnesota sign or anything. The roads we were on all day were fairly quiet and had good shoulders to travel upon. If it wasn’t for the rainy weather the ride would have been a nice ride but unfortunately the weather just made it a tough ride. Also Peter seems to be coming down with a cold and did not feel well today – it was an even longer day for him!!
Once we got into Fergus Falls there was a bike path we were able to follow into the city. We were happy to be done for the day because we were cold and wet.
