Well, that’s it. All done. I’ve cycled from Vancouver to Banff and clocked up around 1,200km in the saddle. I loved all of it.
Our last day was meant to be rainy but once again the weather held out. It was mostly cloudy and cool with occasional bursts of sunshine or little spatters of rain. The predicted thunderstorm never materialised; we rolled into Banff happy and dry.
The terrain today was stunning and the roads were the quietest I’ve experienced on this trip. I decided to ride on my own and just soak it all up, letting the trees, lakes and rivers of the Rocky Mountains keep me company.
At a little over 150km it was our second longest ride of the trip, but it felt like it was over far too quickly. The miles just flew by and suddenly we were in Banff.
I’ve settled into the rhythm of days out on my bike and I have a feeling I’m going to miss it tomorrow.
Here’s my final plea: How about a penny for every kilometre I’ve cycled? A $12 donation would make me oh so happy.
I had a fantastic ride. Not a single flat tire or bad day on the bike. Thanks for reading along, sending encouraging messages and donating to the cause. Over and out.
