Day 37 Thief River Falls > Fosston

Tuesday. Got up and off. Strong head winds made progress slower than ever. Only 75km to the next town but took most of the day. Completely exhausted. The landscape is very similar to the Fens. Dark fertile soils growing sugarbeet, potatoes , soya and grain. There are more trees and slightly more people. We are looking forward to nearing the Lakes in the next few days. Hopefully the wind will change in our favour.

Weather sunny and hot

Wind SE

Road kill none but a golden retriver followed for 4 kms hopefully he found his way home.

Hi Jo we have had a couple of weeks away but took a little time this morning to visit your Blog.

Really fantastic progress.

It is nice that you are able to promote the Lincolnshire attitude towards cycling. How many of our modern Tour de France riders are sponsored by Whiskey producers.

Nothing wrong with the rolling Fen-lands of Heckington

Best wishes to you all Go girls Go, but more importantly enjoy.

Well done Michele great achievement, hope you’re feeling on better form today.
Weather here hot, wind speed slight, humidity high. Road kills on A631 varied... 15 birds, 2 foxes, 2 badgers, 1 elephant, and 1 moped. Driver missing! Last seen heading for Market Rasen on two-humped camel, he’s believed to be a missionary from call centre in Hull.
See we do have some excitement!
All the best girls
where did you say the Vikings were?

To Rony and Joana:I don't know how to start but first of all, I have to say that some of you Americans are really nerve-wracking mnoors. To call Welcome to Burlesque not modern or lacking energy is so stupid!!!!This is very obviously a Tango-flavoured and cabaret-tinged kind of tune and so FRESH and original as Cher has never performed this kind of music before. She could, of course, do another, typically American unimaginative, run-of-the-mill dancefloor track but I'm soo glad that she didn't and that she chose this kind of sound for the movie. Well, tango or cabaret are probably better appreciated by European audiences who, let's face it and I really don't want to sound pretentious but that's just the way it is in most cases!!!!- are more appreciative of culture and of a more artistic and uncommercial approach to music. And for a movie about burlesque cabaret-inspired music is the most appropriate thing. This is DEFINITELY high-quality music and one of Cher's better musical efforts.VA:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...VA:F [1.9.22_1171](from 0 votes)
