Lightening Up – Day 9

This one has one of the better videos from my six month bike tour. Back when I was just starting to feel better.

I left about 11am, packing is still taking 3 hours.. I have way too much nic-nac stuff to keep me comfortable  🙂

There are a series of tunnels between Boston Bar and Yale. Bikers are supposed to ride on the sidewalk in some of them, though I didn’t. A man in Yale advised that I do follow the tunnel rules since he was hit on his bike in one, so I am not a good example here!

The ride is peaceful and not full of too many hills until after crossing the Fraiser river near the Spuzzum nations land. After that its a climb to Hells Gate before coasting the last 10k into Boston Bar. I didn’t get to coast much though. I caught a flat by using the gravel still on the shoulders from snow plows as a braking mechanism.

After arriving in Boston Bar I decided to camp at a bridge crossing the river. After that I made a video, and sadly, this turned out to be the only footage that survived the first two weeks.
