Day 74, Headed off towards Calgary, rest stop home for the night

I didn’t start until just after 7am today as I was a bit sleepy from the fun of yesterday and after saying a sad good bye to Tami I headed off towards Calgary.
Day 214 Day 23 Day 21 Day 23 Day 24 Day 25
The first 40kms were on gravel and it was pretty hard going, Some parts were hard but most soft and with my thin tires I had to hold on and slow right down but made it sweet.
Day 27 Day 28 Day 210 Day 211 Day 217
Then I hit the Trans Canada highway and a huge shoulder was there to welcome me and with the sun trying to come out well a not to crazy wind I headed west.
Day 224 Day 225 Day 223 Day 221 Day 226 Day 228 Day 229
I was tried and didn’t get into much of a smooth run at first but as the day went on I got better, funny how I ride better after a 100kms, funny body my one.
I made Brooks town and got some dinner and saw there was a huge rain storm coming my way so picked up the pace and got some great miles in in the last 2 hrs and missed the storm. Well I made it to a rest stop that was a big building just as it started to rain.
Day 232 Day 233 Day 234 Day 235 Day 236
I thought to my self I didn’t want to pitch my tent in a storm and found a little spot to hide behind inside the building so set up inside. Awesome. It has power, water and a toilet, bloody bonus aye.
Day 237 Day 239 Day 240 Day 241
Not a huge miles day but did 83 miles. Leaves me around 100miles to Calgary tomorrow which is ok. Im meeting a aussie mate Jessie there so will leave early to make it in time for a beer.
