|Early to rise … usually 6:00 a.m.|
|early morning scurrying to ensure each piece of gear |
is in the right bag and each bag is in the right vehicle.
|Fed and watered, ready to depart from Grand Forks|
|Bill's new cycling shoes …|
|on the 'blue bridge'|
|Bill & Emily atop Paulson Pass!!|
Finally we crested and enjoyed before a long smooth descent into Rossland and the Prestige Hotel. Oh yes, it is still a tough climb but the demons were vanquished. Just another day in the saddle. Tomorrow will be our last test of mettle as we ride for 140 km and climb the Kootenay Pass. A couple of the young, extremely fit riders plan to do the Kootenay Pass twice … just because! I'll let you know how they do.
