Aug 2, 2015 - Swimming and freeze dried meals

Day 10 – Leah Today started with a breakfast at Uncle Ken & Aunt Diane’s, naturally Uncle Ken was still full of stories (even without the wine as a stimulant like he had last night). We forced them to pose for a picture and then hit the road. Instead of taking Highway 1 with speeds of over 100km/h, we decided to take Highway 7 the Lougheed Highway that had a speed of 80km/h for the majority of the way. What the highway lacks in high speed it more than makes up for in scenery! Oh, and there was plenty of twists and turns to keep the bikes...

Aug 31, 2013 - Western Montana-- Day 1

In August, we explored a bit of southern British Columbia and northeast Washington. Then it was an enjoyable week along the Kootenay in Libby, Montana.

That night we stayed in the beautiful Coldspring Campground in E.C. Manning Provincial Park.

Apparently, he arrived about one hour before we did. Impressive! With that first climb behind us, John and I rode through the valleys into Manning Park, ending with a...

Jul 15, 2009 - Dernière journée de nature... avant la grande ville

15 juillet, Plus longue journée passée en voiture depuis le début du voyage... et quel choc quand on a été pris dans le traffic, juste en passant l'affiche "Limites de la ville de Vancouver"! Mais quelle route! On a encore une fois eu droit à un parcours plein de virages, de montées et de descentes, tout ça parce qu'on a longé une longue vallée, à flanc de montagne. On a suivi pendant un bon moment le Fleuve Fraser qui descend des montagnes. Heureusement, encore une fois, notre mère nous a déniché un super endroit pour pique-niquer et se...
