On August 31 I start a 9 day cycle tour with the Cross Canada Cycle Touring Society. This is my first trip with this group. I am looking forward to seeing how it all works and to meeting other avid cyclists in my age cohort.
This is a leisurely tour through the south Okanagon, up to the Kamloops area, back down through Merrit and return to Princeton. Much to see and do along the way. We will be camping! Hooray, I love camping almost as much as cycling!
Right now I am preparing my gear - both camping and cycling stuff. My living room is scattered with tent, sleeping bag, therma-rest, bike bags, tools, extra tires as I figure out how to pack it all neatly and efficiently - no small task!
More to come as the start of the trip nears.
