Day 25-Sidney, MT-Wibaux, ND-57.6 miles with 3006 feet of elevation then SAG to Beach, ND.

There had been a late change of plans due to the quality of the rest day hotel and we were rerouted to Wibaux. It was gravel.

We had to break into some gravel.

We met a rancher/farmer/land owner named Ron and when he saw me the first cyclist coming down the hill he thought he was seeing things. Real nice guy and I thanked him for his hospitality.

We finally got to asphalt and it was a very hilly 31 miles on gravel and single track. It was really starting to get hot and we sagged to the hotel instead of 10 more miles of gravel to Wibaux.

We had packed our stuff up and went to an early dinner at the local brewery. It was a great meal.

A needed rest day in Beach, ND. Peace out Tres dog

  1. Amazing. I enjoyed your encounter with the farmer. So many cool little encounters you’ve had. Happy 4th of July! Enjoy the rest day.

  2. I love the flatter, wide open landscape! It’s my favorite. 7 years in Nebraska and 5 in Illinois – you can take the girl out of the prairie, but you can’t take the prairie out of the girl. So did you end up in the lower quality rest hotel after all that gravel? I had to look up SAG snd sagged. Love your trip! Thanks for sharing.
