.Today was just 53 miles and to my great delight there was a strong Westerly wind from the beginning. We climbed a bit out of Boise and I discovered that while we often have 'No Ball Games' signs at home, sporting activities around here are a bit different. I am not sure I would feel confident in asking to have my ball back!
The majority of the route was fairly flat and the locals were quite inventive with the names of their farms
I even got to meet one of them though he was a bit vertically challenged. I tried to engage him in a discussion about his views on Obama but he just sat on the fence!
So that was it on what was a most enjoyable return to cycling after my day off. 97 miles tomorrow so an early start beckons and we are all praying that the strong Westerly continues.
