Passes and tunnels

Canyon Hot Spring to Golden

Day 12 (78 miles)

The day doesn't start well when Trep loses spoke number two barely a couple of miles out of the campsite. After much consideration we decide to carry on over Rogers Pass into Golden rather than return to Revelstoke in search of a bike shop.

Mercifully the climb is not as bad as touted although we heed the advice to avoid cycling through the tunnels (actually avalanche sheds) when trucks are coming. The decent is long and rapid, if a little scary.

Despite a few showers near the summit the weather is starting to treat us well and we roll into Golden beneath clear skies and beside a very bright blue river. I missed the young bear beside the road feasting on carrion. Despite being curious I decide not to go back because I still want the bear to miss me.

The evening is spent at a pub in the company of a Scottish software engineer who has also left job and home to roam the country on a bike, his has a motor though. Dog chases us on the return to the campsite.

First of all I ωould liκe to say superb
blog! I had a quiсk question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

Ι was inteгeѕted to find οut how you centеr yourself and сlear your
mind before wгiting. I hаvе
hаd a diffіcult timе cleагіng my thoughts іn getting mу thoughts οut there.
I do take pleasure in wгiting but it just seems likе thе fіrst 10 to 15 minutes tend to be loѕt juѕt trying to fіgure out
how to begin. Any suggestions or tiрs? Many thankѕ!
