Day 25

Posted: June 26, 2012 in Bike Ride Across America 2012

A very “friendly” ride to New Salem, ND!


While the wind and the heat were not very welcoming today, the people along my route were some of the friendliest I’ve encountered.  More people smiled and waved to me today than on any other segment of this trip. One couple even drove up alongside me and handed me an ice-cold Aquifina through the window as I pedaled. It sure did hit the spot! Thank you!! That simple act of kindness reminded me of how easy it is to be generous and show care to others. Perhaps the reminder to recognize those opportunities that God gives us to demonstrate His love is an even greater gift than the cold drink of water.

    A great reminder! Thanks to God for surrounding you with people near and far who are watching over you and praying for you.

  2. I can’t find New Salem on an online map!!!! The city has a great website with what appears to be a huge cow statue. Are you following I-94 or blue highways below? WHERE will you cross the ND/MN border? Blessings for sharing your adventure.
