Day 11 Libby to Eureka

Strava link

Satellite tracking


What did the fish say when he ran into a wall? … dam

Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink. It was a beautiful ride today from Libby up to Eureka that followed along lake Koocanusa that runs for 90 miles from Libby up into Canada. With all that shoreline there was not a single house built on it anywhere that I saw. It is a beautiful unspoiled lake in northern Montana with great fishing (so I was told). The lake was always 100 feet below the the road so I couldn’t get down to filter water except for one location. So, it was a very long dry day. With all the solitude of that remote area it came as quite a surprise to me when I heard voices while I was riding. I pulled over to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating. I happily discovered rock climbers hanging from the rocks close to the road. Shortly after the rock climbers I meet a west bound cyclist that took the train from Chicago to whitefish and was cycling to Seattle from there. We swapped info about what was ahead and I gave him some extra water as I was less than 10 miles from my stopping point.

  1. Good morning, Dan. I’m curious if you listen to music on these long stretches or does that sap too much valuable battery life? If you do, what do you listen to? Keep pedaling!


  2. Hey Dan! This is an amazing adventure, with spectacular scenery! I am loving following along. Here’s to a bed, shower and many days of accessible water!
