Montana 2014 Part 1 – Day 44 – Billings: All business

Wednesday July 2, 2014, 19 miles (31 km) – Total so far: 1,985 miles (3,195 km)

Today is an errand day. I need to get my thyroid script refilled, purchase a few supplies (including insect repellent and bear spray), get my hair cut and see about getting a new middle chain ring. Shifting problems persist.

Billings is not really bike-friendly, but I manage to get around. The best option in some places is to just take the lane. I also opt to cash in some Rewards points, which I’ve been accumulating for years, to get a motel room. That RV park was not very nice, was over-crowded and very expensive. The KOA did not look any better. After riding all over the place today (the smoke haze is from wildfires in Canada), I decide I would never want to live in Billings.
