Fargo to Bismark 254.8 miles
Fargo is the biggest town that I have traveled through in quite awhile. The population of the city is over 120,000 and the metro area is 250,000. Moorhead, MN is the twin city across the Red River. Getting through the city safely is always a worry for me. I look for bike paths and some cities will have bike lanes on the streets. The Adventure Cycling Association maps indicate the best route. Staying on the road is the safest spot and always checking your surroundings.
The Red River runs through the city and forms most of the border with Minnesota. This river runs north into Lake Winnepeg and then into the Hudson Bay.
Looking for camping options, I see many camping options around Fargo. I have also read that many of the towns along the Northern Tier allow camping for cyclists in the city park. I will have to see what I find. The ACA map gives camping information also. Some of the organized campgrounds offer more than I need.

Farmer John "Custer" Grenz lined up many old threshing machines used to separate the seed from the other parts of the plant. Check out https://www.facebook.com/Dinosaurs-on-the-Prairie-1943277285971323/ for more information about the machines.
Over the last couple of days the elevation has gained about 1000'. I am now about 2000' above sea level. What is flax? I know that I have eaten it and you can find the grain in the grocery.
