Day 106: Bismark (Rest Day)

A busy rest day! Shorts repaired; pocket sown on shirt; replacement cycle shorts purchased; spare winter clothes posted back to UK; chain cleaned; some cycling; and a trip to the North Dakota Capitol Building.

Just watched the English Women's Football Team get beat by the Japanese tean through an own goal! Oh well, so it goes! So no England vs USA the day after Independence Day.

Tomorrow, it is back on to the the Lewis and Clarke Trail as I make my way to Sioux City for RAGBRAI (Ride Across Iowa). I'm expecting the mosquito count to significantly increase as I'll be riding alongside the Missouri, but I'm now armed with deet!
