My Summer Tour
Here are two pictures from my summer tour. I went from Lincoln Nebraska to the Black Hills, SD to visit my girlfriend. These are pictures from Nebraska, they are both just of my bicycle (named Colonel Mustard) in landscape images. As I am sure most of you know, pictures don't do justice to what one sees on a tour.
I had a great time. It was my first "real" tour, and I went alone. It took me six days, 550miles. I ended up being really poor when I got there, as I caved and stayed three nights in motels, so I got a job at subway for ten days.
When I got there, my girlfriend and I went to Sturgis (120miles roundtrip). Van Ocker canyon is amazing, if you guys are ever up there. There is a natural spring that has yummy water you can drink, on the side of the road. The Mickelson trail was also amazing, it's a ~100 mile gravel MUP through the black hills.
