Thursday 7th June 2012 – Fort Collins to Sterling.

Fort Collins to Sterling. 104 miles.

Really tough ride against the wind today! It’s all pretty flat now, hardly any trees just miles of grass, still very scenic, it’s just another different part of this very varied landscape.

Not sure whether their oil or gas mines but there’s plenty of nodding donkeys around in the fields.

Ended the day being chased by a storm, I could see the clouds getting darker and the wind got up, strange the black clouds were coming from behind me yet I was riding against the wind! There was loads of fork lightning around, which was pretty spectacular, but I couldn’t hang around and watch I didn’t want to get caught in the storm, luckily I just found a motel as the heavens opened, it was so dark it was more like night time!
