My second year was a fairly tough ride across the prairies.
I thought that I would have a west wind pushing me all the way but as it turned out the wind seemed to blow from the north or the south most of the time. I did have one day in Southern Manitoba with a good west wind and rode for several hours at an average speed of over 30 kilometres an hour.


I stopped for lunch in Medicine Hat and was able to use my tripod and timer to take this picture.


Lesley and I arrived at the Alberta Saskatchewan border the same time as a man riding a motorcycle from Calgary to Regina. We compared bikes and travel plans and took a picture for each other. He is taking the picture and that is why you can see his bike, my bike and Lesley and me.



After two full days riding, I had quite a sun burn.


When I was 5 years old, I had an accident with a Case Eagle. I tried to climb on it and tipped it over. It broke my right thumb and some bones in my foot.

They are no longer that common and so I enjoy taking pictures of them whenever I can. This one is in Maple Creek,

Saskatchewan where we finished the second day of the bike trip.





Large bales of hay came in handy when a moment of privacy was needed.
