Saint Paul, USA
Our last day started off with a flat tire (#172) before leaving Amery. A refreshingly cool breeze from the north aided our journey down the Stower Seven Lakes Trail. The new crushed limestone surface is still a little soft, so before Wanderoos we exited onto the great paved roads of Wisconsin that I know so well. About a dozen Rovers met us at the Gasthaus Bavarian Hunter for a beer and buffet. Julie and I met a dozen years ago on a similar Rovers bike ride. We cycled back to Saint Paul on the popular Gateway trail which will soon be extended to Stillwater and has new bike bridges over the busy highways. More friends were waiting to greet us at the State Capitol at the end of our journey around the world by bicycle.
