Day 34, Kansas

From Yates Center to Pittsburg

I left Yates Center at dawn. The rain had quit, but the clouds were still hanging low, and the streets were wet. I took 75 south to Buffalo, then 39 to Chanute, where I stopped for a snack. Then on to Walnut via 50 and 146. Girard was next, and I had a mail-drop there at the P.O.: maps and a tire pump.

Scheduled maintenance and a new tire pump

The pump was a little bit of Christmas, because it had a pressure gauge. And with that, I found out that I had been riding on under-inflated tires since the beginning of the trip. And with them properly pressurized, the bike seemed to roll a little better.

Then on down to Pittsburg via 7 and 126, and I rolled down to Broadway, then north 1.5 mi to a motel.

Miles pedaled today: 90
