Days 24 & 25: Dickinson, ND to New Salem, ND; New Salem, ND to Hazelton, ND

 

We had no idea rural street signs were ever numbered like this!

We’ve been rolling up and down hills in what we thought was flat North Dakota, but the scenery has been pretty, and the traffic has been extremely light with the exception of the short stretches on I-94. Clearly, we survived the previous night of intense storms, but we got a late start due to a late night of hanging out in the shelter of the showers building. We rode well both days, with a nice tailwind both mornings. People have been friendly, the towns are relatively close together, and we’re enjoying the ride across this state. It’s been relatively uneventful, but this evening we ran into a slew of other cyclists that with whom we’re sharing a campground.
