Jul 5, 2013 - Binscarth (MB) to Minnedosa (MB)

The recommended route for today was to head South on Highway 41 for 17 km, then East on Highway 42 for 58 km to Shoal Lake in order to avoid the traffic on the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 16), which has no shoulder on that section.

It was another day of prairie riding with more trees and the occasional pond. We overwhelmed the small café in Birtle. They had to send out for more eggs. The town of Shoal Lake welcomed us and invited us to use the facilities in the town hall. Prairie hospitality is awesome. Manitoba or at the least the parts we are in seems to have far more water and trees than the part of Saskatchewan that we went through. There were also a number of clearly man made structures that looked like straw bird houses in many of the ponds. This was our first...
