Rodebud Rambler 2018
|Connor, Mr. Pillows, and Chris overlooking the Rosebud River Valley|
In the never ending quest to ride in new places the 3 of us set off on a mostly-gravel bike overnight to the Canadian Badlands, destination Drumheller, Alberta. Our route was based around avoiding pavement as much as we could and would take us through Rockyford, Rosebud, Wayne, and eventually to the giant dinosaur in"Drum".

|But first, we had to get to the edge of the city, and with a very warm day ahead we elected to go multimodal and use the train to get up into the deep NE.|
|With no resupply or water stops along the days route, we popped into the only gas station we saw just east of the city limits to grab a few last snacks before setting off into the wide expanse of Alberta's prairie.|
|Lovely scene just east of Rockyford, Alberta.|
|The Rosebud Valley and Rosebud the town. Such a cute spot.|
|The 10X road is a real treat to ride. It scoots up a valley from the Red Deer River and is famous for all the 11? bridges in less than 10kms. Check it out.|
|Star Mine Suspension Bridge. Note the lovelocks. Really worth checking out if you are in the area.|
Go bike touring!
