Day 59 Sweetwater to Lander

We couldn't get out of the campsite quick enough this morning. The mosquitos were so bad even at 5AM that we skipped breakfast and cycled straight through to Lander.

Only 40 miles and with an amazing 10 mile descent most of us were in camp by 10 30AM. As there were no services again on the route I cannot tell you the pleasure generated by the Mcdonalds sign just before we got to Lander. Junk food is an essential ingredient for long distance cycling.

Mcdonalds also has reliable wifi unlike the AT & T signal which has gone walkabout in this part of America.

We now have a rest day in Lander where we will be joining in the 4th July celebrations and watching a Rodeo before we begin our ascent to Yellowstone Park and the Tetons.
