Here We Go Again….. 2015 Edition

Friday 10 July 2015

It’s not often we talk about our flight, but then it’s not often (ever) we are sitting next to former NFL coach, Marty Schottenheimer.  Needless to say, there will not be much on this trip that can top this experience for Jerry.DSCN3080He is now planning on getting back home before football season starts!

After rather seamlessly putting the bikes back together, we took a stroll through downtown Missoula situated on the banks of the Clark Fork River.IMG_0004  Everyone was out,IMG_0007 enjoying the band and food festival DSCN3089in the 100° temperatures (it’s a dry heat, HA!).

We made a stop at Adventure Cycling Association;DSCN3096 the organization that maps the U.S. for bicycling riding/touring and our reason for starting here.  Missoula is a wonderful place, quaint, quirky, wonderful people. As we wandered through town, we happened into a running store where we reacquainted ourselves with World Class Marathoner, Dick Beardsley, DSCN3102 - Version 2here for the Missoula Marathon.

We found a wonderful local Brew Pub, a good place to replenish.DSCN3081This is what Montana Flatbread looks like, Yum!

Now fully fortified, we can climb out of the valley and over the mountains that surround the town.DSCN3086
