Day 13 - Sunday June 13 - Moose Jaw to Indian Head (167 km)

"Detour to the Capital"
After the wedding, we woke up a little tired from the partiers, but nonetheless we were on the road by 7:30 am. We appreciated the sun and made good time to Regina, and then rode for 20 km around town trying to find a bike shop that was open. This actually turned out to be nice because it allowed us to see the city rather than just passing through. Regina has a really green downtown (we rode the "green mile") with lots of gardens and streets lined with mature trees. Note: the location of the "tourism information centre" on the SK tourism map is incorrect. We met a few fellow cyclists who are riding across the country to raise money for prostate cancer research (pedalersforprostate.ca), and shared some of our experiences so far. SK roads are fairly rough in terms of poor pavement quality, however it was a fairly easy day and we arrived at our KOA campsite around 8. We love this campsite as it allowed us to get somewhat caught up on the blog (Telus doesn't have BlackBerry access in this province, and possibly in the next). V got new cleats today, and J was reassured about her tire. We both might be allergic to something seasonal here as we're both getting the sniffles. We've been making wraps for dinner, mostly because we don't have to cook and they are a well-balanced meal. We miss our milk!
