So on the canada day long weekend, all of my friends were scattered around the interior doing different things. I decided to pay them a visit and get some miles on the bike.
I had a friend staying at his cabin in Christina lake, a friend riding dirt in rossland, a bunch of friends partying in penticton and another bunch in osoyoos.
Took off a little early on Friday and hit the #3. My sleddin backpack proved to be just as good on a bike. Snug, enough storage, and hydration pack full of water and gatorade.
I had to ride past many good photo ops unfortunately. I was batteling the clock there and back because ICBC's curse turns me into a pumpkin at sundown. (road test is end of july .. can't wait)
Here's my route map I know I could have been a lot more creative, but I'm a noob on 2 wheels and am just learning these things.
Trip meter reads the number of kilometers I had ridden, ever.
On the road, out of traffic, stopping for some photo ops here and there
The sky looked angry at parts, but I only got a few drops of rain on me for the whole trip. Some others got soaked on the weekend on similar trips.. I got lucky
Beautiful scenery along the way!
