As we made good progress over the last few days, only 80 flat km left to Missoula! As usual we got up early to avoid the heat and after one hour of riding the Black Bear Adventure Cycling Team caught us. Big surprise for us at the first stop, as they decided to invite us for one night at the Hilton associated Doubletree Hotel in Missoula! Thank you! There was an easy riding until Lolo on a newly created Bicycle path, but the last 10 km into town was a bit of a pain. In Missoula we were visiting the TransAm Headquarters and planned our last route: We will follow the Louis and Clark Trail to Astoria and then going along the pacific coast ending the cycling in Crescent City. Missoula is a very nice town and it was very hot so we took a bath in the river which reminded us of Rhine swimming of our home town!
