Day 19 – The End of Over 1,000km in 5 days (Wade)

Today we rode from Brandon to Winnipeg. Another day, another 12 hours on the bike. Thank God we are done with that nonsense. The rest of the trip will no doubt have it’s challenges, but racing through the Prairies at a clip of over 200km per day was stupid. It may have seemed less so…
