Had a big ride ahead of me today. 71 miles to Kamiah ID up HWY 12 along the Clearwater River. I checked the route and it looked a little squirrelly getting out of Lewiston, especially because there is a nice riverside bike path that I want to intercept that was a little confusing (well, for me any way).
should have gone right and of course I went left. I was cruising along with the nice Snake River breeze in my face, but the problem was it should have been the Clearwater breeze. Of course I didn’t have my navigation turned on (I know, I know) and when I did Siri immediately said “in 100 feet take a U turn.” Ugh, this is getting ridiculous.
The riding conditions were still not terrific in that there is very little shoulder and a lot of trailers and fifth-wheels. As with yesterday, the scenery was very beautiful.
The rest of the ride was fine and we arrived in Kamiah ahead of schedule so we decided to take a quick dip in the Clearwater River. About 1 second and some major shrinkage later, I was back on shore ready for a towel and some lunch.
55 miles tomorrow further down HWY 12 but not exactly sure where we are staying. Oh well, we’ll figure it out when we get there. Another hot one but I’ll be up and out early.
