Day 17: York, NE to Holdrege, NE

Nebraska's farm land

Today was another beautiful day – nearly 120 miles on the road, and except for a crosswind, the weather was exceptional.  I have been impressed by the large grain fields in Nebraska; they are gigantic. The land is planted as far as the eye can see. A lot of farm equipment passed us on the road today, and a lot of the drivers, as well as a motorcyclist, encouraged us with shouts of, “Go, Irish!”

Passing farm equipment

Unfortunately, my tri bike frame broke today – an unusual problem for bikes like this made from carbon fiber. We’re working with the bike shop back home to get a replacement. In the meantime, I have a spare bike, so the ride goes on.

Go Irish!
