To Regina

Today's 150 km felt like a rest day after yesterday. We arrived in Regina by about 2:30 pm, and met up with Rich's friend Aaron who has been gracious enough to host us. I started the morning feeling terrible but was still able to push out 25km/h for three hours. Paul towed me the whole way, but I'm still encouraged by that stat, and I'm getting excited for riding my road bike again in Vancouver. After arriving in Regina we did some bike maintenance. Rich broke a spoke today, and Paul needed to true a wheel. Both Paul and I had also developed slow leaks from small wire shards, likely from the shredded tires of transport trucks scattered on the shoulder occasionally. We're at over 8000km collectively and haven't had a single flat while riding yet, which is an incredible testament to the Schwalbe Marathon tires we are all running. None need replacement yet by a long shot. Rolling into Regina is cool, it's a disproportionately nice town for the wasteland of grass that surrounds it on all sides. I like it here, but I'd miss the ocean.
