Whatever you want to call them, mine are champions for accomplishing today's ride. Granted, it would not have been possible without the wind, but the hours on the bike were only doable because of my lower half.
I had a hell of a headwind 'heedwind' coming into Waterton yesterday, and sometime during the night, the wind shifted directions and brought me a headwind coming out this morning as well. A poor way to start the day, but it only got better. With the wind at my back I powered to an early lunch at about 45 miles in at 10:30am. Loaded with carbs, I did not take any breaks and was that the American border by 2pm, 75 miles in. The wind still with me, i reached my final destination, Cut Bank MT ahead of schedule at 4:45pm. I've reached the end of map number 2 of 11 in my trip. Now is the moment to be making up some miles lost, gladly lost, in Glacier and Whitefish.
