Independence Day Ride

Want to ride with me through North Dakota as the sun sets on US Independence Day 2012? No fireworks just a video from my handlebars. Click on the video above. Nerdy narrator included.

The ride from Rugby to Lakota, North Dakota on Route 2 is smooth, wind-enhanced, sunny and hot. The landscape is gently rolling with lakes and ponds mixed in with the fields of wheat and corn.

Leisa joins me for picnic lunches and can capture scenes when I not paying attention or, in this case, when I am fast asleep in the heat of the day.

Along the road I encounter some fenced in animals I never thought were kept in captivity.

When we get to Lakota, I ask where the fireworks will be. I am told that people buy their own around here. That’s independence.
