Reunited with our bikes
We were reunited with our bikes yesterday at Rebound Cycles in Canmore. (Bikes: Una, Pearl the surly Girl, and Blixen.) Emmanuel converted our tires to tubeless, reassembled them and did a safety check. We purchased spare brake cables, shifter cables, bear spray, new reading glasses for Mimi, small containers to repack goop/food. Stopped for coffee before riding 15 miles back to Banff. The bikes are great! The mountains are really spectacular, with a bit of haze in the valleys and obscuring the far mountains. Back at the BNB We added our racks and packed our bikes, feeling a lot of pressure to complete in one day what was planned for two days. Larry went to the local bike shop and borrowed a pedal wrench from Tom. Later, on our way to a great Mexican dinner we ran into Tom again, who offered any service we need until we reach the US Canadian border. After a great meal, and a couple of liters of beer, we went to the IGA and picked up our last food supplies. Stayed up too late packing and re-packing but we are planning to hit the trail in the morning. Larry will depart back to Boston and we will miss him. Chef, webmaster, handyman and Bike support mechanic. Did I mention mental health counseling? Thank you Larry! And we are off! Gulp! Deep breath.
