Day 30 Mandan to Napoleon, NDJuly 8 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F
75.3 miles, 2336 feet. Today the temps were very pleasant. We headed south out of Mandan and skirted our way through Bismarck on a nice bicycle trail. The first climb was an effort after taking the day off yesterday. We crossed the Missouri River and were surprised to see more green and trees.
Much of the route today was on nice low traffic two lane highways. The one busy section had a decent shoulder, although the wind picked up and we fought a head wind for much of the day. Our overnight is in the tiny town of Napoleon at the Mozy Motel.Read more
