The weather was quite favourable with semi-cloudy skies, cool temperatures and a tailwind that allowed me to cruise at over 30 km/h for extended periods. I stopped for coffee at a truck stop where I was a surprised to see they also sold ammunition. The ride until Duluth was relatively uneventful, as the road crossed extensive wetlands, one of which was the home of a family of Canada geese which resented my presence when I tried to photograph them. At another point, I stopped to photograph an osprey on its nest.
Galleria Bicycle could indeed and were quite interested in my trip and my bike. They gave me some suggestions as to which was the prettiest way into town.
