My friend Erik says they the most distinguishing characteristic of a New Zealand accent is the soft 'e' sound. So to them, death is 'deeth', legs is 'leegs'. It was very funny when he explained it I assure you.

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.

Waterton Village AB > Cut Bank MT, 106 miles (personal record), day 15

Good News, Bad News!

Good news- you're pretty much out of the mountains now, no more climbing
Bad news- you're out of the mountains, pretty flat and boring for a while, not much to photograph.

Back home in Aotearoa (En Zed) you may chuck teen ceents for some eegs but they're great for your leegs!
Bru! You'll need them to carry you across this boring continent. In the homeland you'd be peeked by Kiwi birds as you climb mountains betweeeen beeeaches and rainforests. Would you like a chip, bru?
Good theeng you've left for Canada. Montreal > Chicago.
Bru! Wheeen are you going to shave your heeead, bru? You planning to be a bald beard, bru?
