Today, I decided to do another training run. I decided a 30 km would be ok. Thankfully, it was not as hot as yesterday, and the clouds were out. It made for easier riding and I actually had energy.
Going up Highway 16 I saw this bike support van going by and I immediately thought of the Texas 4000 ride from Texas to Alaska. I had last met them on the 2010 Tour De Jasper. Sure enough, soon after, I saw some riders with their familiar shirts! I cheered them as they went by. I am glad thatI went riding today, or I would have missed them! It is another lucky day I think.
I continued up the hill and rode to the turnoff to Highway 97. I eventually ended back home. I was getting a little tired riding into the wind, but I got honks of support from drivers.
I believe that this is the last ride that I will do before riding to Jasper on Wednesday. At home I quickly bought some Canadian flags for the bikes when me and Deanna ride in the USA.
