Well, it's almost that time of year for me again. Bike Touring time, that is. Every year I alternate, bike one year, then hike. Actually, that's not true! I always help out on Tour De Jasper, so I ride and hike.
This year there is no Tour De Jasper, but I still want to ride. I am planning to ride to Jasper with friends. And maybe more after. It's been very hot now, 30 plus celcius. But I am still riding despite the heat.

Yesterday I biked 70 km past Purden with my friends Mary-Jo and Paul. I biked on a head with a loaded bike to practice for the big trip. I was lucky enough to meet a rider from Bavaria, and rode with him for a while. He rode all over Russia and Asia before catching a barge to Prince Rupert. His destination? South America.

Before we left, me and my friends had a bite at the Purden Resort Restaurant which serves awesome food!
I won't be connected to the grid much on this particular trip, but I will post afterwards all about it! This is the second time that I will be riding the Icefields.
