Day 17 – Vermillion to Yankton

31.8 miles today – 808.0 total miles

Today was a pleasant ride with a nice tailwind most of the day.

Part way though the ride Keith picked up some additional, unexpected souvenirs. While taking a drink he got distracted and his front wheel went off the road and he took a tumble.  Except for a few minor scrapes, he is OK.

The temperatures are much more agreeable today, although we did not tempt fate and rode in the morning.  Just as we were approaching Yankton, it began to sprinkle.  That was all we got.  It was scheduled to give us heavy rain overnight again so we opted for a motel.  Keith enjoyed the pool immensely.

This is our last day of riding in the flat Missouri River floodplain.
