Day 35: Big Springs, NE - Potter, NE

Time: 5:34:16
Distance: 117.73km
Average Speed: 21.1km/h

We cycled down to Julesburg, Colorado to get Ryan's spoke replaced. When we arrived we saw that the bike shop only opened every 2 weeks on a Friday and Saturday. At a petrol station up the road 3 wise old men gave us the phone number of the bike shop owner. We called but he was working. His wife came into town and opened up the shop. All 3 of us didn't know how to replace a spoke but we managed to get the job done and bought 1 or 2 spares from her. Today we entered a new time zone. I'm now 7 hours behind Irish time. It was almost dark when we arrived at the Point of Rocks campground just outside Potter.
