Yeah, I’ve been lazy with updating this here blog. I reckon I should add a 4th essential to my “Unlikely Trinity Of Bikepacker Blogging” (Phone battery, Internet access & Time) – that being “Motivation.” Continue reading Days 34 & 35: Badlands, South Dakota
Chasing 2nd Century in a row
After my big mile day yesterday, one of two things could happen today. Either I’d be physically broken (as tends to happen after extra-strenuous effort) or I’d be super-motivated to push for even bigger miles.

What a difference a day makes!
That and getting an early start to the day after a rested nights sleep, wind direction, not over-eating at breakfast, road conditions, road-works and associated diversions and associated heavy duty traffic on light duty roads, keeping hydrated, and generally being well motivated!
Another great day; 2nd imperial century!
Moderate headwind in morning as I headed North, then moderate tailwind as headed West in afternoon and (sunset chasing) evening.
Possibility of hitting my halfway point tomorrow if I manage another full day to reach Sioux City!
Will earn myself another rest day if I do!!!
