Day 9: The day we slept in

Today we took an actual rest day at the Bacon Bike Hostel.

The Bacon Bike Hostel was created by Shelly and Barry Bacon, a couple who spent several years living and working as medical missionaries in Africa before deciding to settle in near Colville, WA to raise their family.

They built a beautiful house, and they also built a four-bedroom, cyclists-only hostel for people biking the Northern Tier route. It has everything a person could possibly want (except for wifi), including hot showers, comfy beds, and complimentary laundry.

Anybody riding the Northern Tier should plan their trip around spending a night (or two!) here.  The location is perfect for a rest day after climbing all of those passes!
