Strange name for a small city, but who am I to judge ? Another quite long ride with good conditions along the roads of Kansas.
I did a noticeable mistake in preparing the ride though : I was wrong by 10 miles ! Or 16 kilometers, which is quite a bit. I realized that when I switched to the new map. On the second panel was the 19 miles south, but then here was an unexpected 10 miles stretch to the city ! Damn 🙂 And it was already late and beginning to get really hot. Well not much choice in any case, it was a place with no possible stop.
Yes, for the first time in a week, the trail turned south ! And then back east which was more reassuring. At this moment I was passed by four trucks carrying wings for wind turbines. I’ve seen a few the previous days. It’s really gigantic up close 🙂 But why four wings when they have only three ?
Apart from that, not much to say, I left some time before the Chinese team and thought they would catch up, especially when some slopes appeared, but I didn’t see them on the road. And if today was hot, tomorrow will be even hotter, so I’ll be leaving very early.
Oh yeah, I saw that in a field right after Ness city 🙂 Reminds me of a comic where a driver is losing control of his vehicle :
– Jesus take the wheel !
(Jesus pops up in the car)
– I don’t know how to drive !
– Aaaaaaaaaaaah !! (Both)
Another map down – a short one, as are most for the TransAmerica.
