Wisdom, MT

Yesterday I had the chance to chat with touring cyclist Julie, from Montreal, who told about the chance of a decent espresso inside. Julie was heading west, up and over Chief Joseph Pass, complete with her black lab in a trailer. She'd started in St. Louis and is traveling solo, like I do. Wow. Way to go, adventure cyclist! I'm driving the weeklong Cycle Montana route armed with an aerosol of spray chalk, marking the road to give the 60+ riders behind me the security of a tried and tested route. Not for these sensible folks my apparently "preferred" method of bike touring, which involves a bunch of initial planning, which goes off the rails about my second day out. From then I rely on serendipity and the kindness of strangers. It's worked amazingly well so far. But it's fun to get the chance to do it this way too.
