Ride Day 16: We awoke in our tents to heavy rain and chilly temperatures, it felt like England in March... Whilst British Columbia in the West of Canada has a huge heat-wave and forest fires, here in Manitoba in the Prairies it's cool and wet. We sat in the car having breakfast, with rain dripping down the windows, procrastinating and feeling lethargic! The prospect of riding in the cold and rain sapped my motivation for a while... I managed 80 miles though, from Sinclair to Wawanesa, through lovely farmland. The sky darkened several times during the day and I got thoroughly soaked; my feet squelched all day! We had a lunch stop in 'Souris' then pitched tents by a picturesque river as darkness fell.
