Though the wind was in my face all day, it was not too strong so I managed 13mph which is a bit of a disappointment from the 16-18mph I have been averaging over last few days and made the ride a little longer than hoped. I set off at 6.15am and arrived just after 1pm. However, it was a beautiful ride and I knew that I was having a rest day on Saturday which is both needed and a thoroughly exciting prospect.
The ride was one of the hardest, not because of the physicality, but because mentally I hit a bit of a wall today
Arrived in Sandpoint which is reached by a 2-3m bridge over the majestic Lake Pend Oreille lake. It is the 4th deepest in the US and has 111m of coastline and on Sunday I get to cycle around most of it! It is a ski and summer resort and hence is quaint and beautiful and my room at the Best Western must be one of the most impressive of any of that chain - and having stayed in many I can attest that this is really a stunning location.
After the visit to the coin operated laundrette, an experience I havn't had to go through since my last trip 5yrs ago, I had a delicious dinner of steak and crab cakes and the single glass of red wine was enough to send me to bed at 9pm!
