Today was a crazy hard day through rolling countryside of the Rocky Mountain foothills. Always stop for lunch after the tough hill, that was a mistake, wish I knew a tough one was coming! All day long I cut through a never-ending sea of trees, hills, headwind, chip seal my constant companions. It gets HOT here in BC! It was easily 85F today, and no reprieve from the sun. At 4 PM I found a little side dirt road, rolled out my camping mat essentially in the middle of the road(no picnic waysides here in Canada), and took a cat nap.
95 miles into the day my chain failed again, having somehow got bent. I finally made it to the campground at about 8 PM, and commenced my latest chain surgery.
