Where I stayed
Country Club Rd Inn

Flag of United States  , Kansas
Friday, July 16, 2010

The cloudless sky led to rapid heating once I was out of the highlands. By noon it was 101 when you stopped anywhere.
So I called it a day in Colby and decided I would have to leave earlier in the day to make decent time before the killer temp arrives. Today I went through 2 vest charges and Camelbak fillings just in the 4 hours of riding.
The Visitor Ctr gent in Colby was very helpful wih motel and cafe rec's. After unpacking I walked (with my wet vest on) to Smoffee's Bakery & Bistro for lunch/dinner. They usually have live music on Friday evenings but there is a bluegrass fest in town tonight so the Bistro is just open for food. Very friendly & helpful folks so I hope they do well - just opened their business.
The Country Club Rd Inn may sound pricey but it is certainly not. It has been recently renovated and is clean and comfy with the usual coffee, micro & fridge combo. Just wish there was a tree to park the bike under in my section. No bugs in the room but if you go out in the dark be careful where you step, lots of critters.
