All that being said, I really enjoyed today's ride. I ran into several more cross-country cyclists today, both on the road and at rest stops. We compared war stories and you'll be happy to know the incessant headwind hasn't been in my imagination. Everyone I've spoken to so far has been shocked at the volume of headwind coming through the prairies.
I've found it interesting seeing the different people and group configurations doing the cross-country trek. Couples have been the largest demographic so far, followed by buddies on an adventure, and very few individuals. Of The individuals, most seem to have hooked up with another person or group along the way. While I enjoy meeting people on the way and hanging out with fellow cyclists, I still prefer to keep my rides solo.
