If you need a reason to bike across America, here we go Bache Cyclists & Co.
Ask me anything
The Albrecht Cycle Shop in Sioux City was a treat. We needed to switch out tires, buy Chris Lotz some bike shorts and new water bottles. All of our needs were met quickly and then descended into the basement where they keep the bikes people leave for repairs and never pick up. It has some gems. My favorite is the Schwinn Coffee which I totally would have bought if I still lived in Brooklyn.
Today we gave into the Lightspeed wheel and sent half of us to the bike shop for some repairs. In that time I was able to visit the Dakota Territorial Museum next to the park where we had lunch. The museum itself was the typical collection of every pack-rats treasures in the region: old Bible, old sewing machine, some quilts. Don’t get me wrong, I love this stuff. But I’ve seen it before. What was much more interesting to me were the preserved buildings behind the museum. These ethnographic exhibits are a staple of all our travels. A school house, outhouse, log cabin, and railroad station were lined up and had some decent explanations. The log cabin was especially neat since it was decorated as if lived in. What a treat.
Some pictures from today’s ride starting at the battle site, going through the Crow Agency, and along the Little Bighorn.
The highway today was quite a ride down some scrub land in Washington. The sign is kind of an indication of where we were.
