It is raining like crazy. We had breakfast at the college before riding off to the local Squamish school where we did our morning presentation. Our riding started with a huge hill, several kilometres long that took us almost an hour and a half to climb. By the time we reached the school, we were all soaked and cold – we hadn’t even started our ride for the day yet. I am enjoying myself but some of the kids are struggling; they were just not prepared for the distances and the weather.
Our ride took us to North Vancouver – we covered 85km total distance today. We were still riding on the Horseshoe Bay highway at 6:30pm. The traffic was nuts and we couldn’t see anything due to the dark. I was so stressed out and scared – we were supposed to be off the road by 4pm. After the morning rain, the rest of the day was good – great views and sunny. I am so tired though. It takes a lot out of you to stop and go all the time. I’ve already had one flat and I had to change my front brake pads.
