A quick ride into Missoula this morning. We only had 30 downhill miles to go, so it was almost like a rest day. We arrived in Missoula before noon and made our way to Adventure Cycling. Roger is friends with one of the founders, Greg Siple. Greg gave us a tour of the facilities and took our photos for the photo wall. It was a nice afternoon. Afterwords we went with May in search of lodging for our extra long rest. Somehow we have gotten ahead of schedule, so we will have an extra rest day in Missoula.
Lodging was challenging as there is a marathon in town this weekend, but we found a very nice, albeit pricey motel that will make a great place to take a break. After settling in we went out for dinner then dropped by a local music event in the park. Music was mediocre, but people watching, especially the cute kids was fun.
Tomorrow will be chores and maintenance.
