Finally found a public library in which we can post some photos...
The trip had an interesting start as it saw Cam's rear rack get destroyed (and took a part of the bike frame with it)... As a result, the team had to spend a couple extra days in Banff (not complaining). We finally started pedaling Friday, June 30 after having received a new Thule rack shipped in from Calgary. Had we not been in Banff, and had the help from the folks at Soul Cycle & Ski, it would have been a pretty stressful 3 days.
Here are some more snippets of day 1...
The lads at the starting line. Banff Springs Hotel in the background.
G trekking through the first river crossing of the route. Cold glacier waters and cold nuts.
Cam crossing the crick.
G approaching a neat looking mountain in Banff.
Quick snack and #instagram style photo
The view from our spot for the night. We had high hopes of pedaling ~100km the first day but soon realized our legs had other ideas. The combination of gradients and coarsely graveled roads provided some nice leg cramps. As a result, we were offered a nice yurt to crash in courtesy of some very nice people at Mount Engadine Lodge.
