Today started unlike a normal day. 730 to 830 breakfast. Then we loaded up the bikes and vans. We headed to the Columbia ice fields.
Carrie and I hiked up to the edge of the glacier. We took three other cyclist along to the parking lot. Thveiw was great looking in either direction. Forward or back towards the center.
Carrie and I had to have a pic in front of the glacier. As you can tell I didn't selfy this one cause I would never take one of my big gut.
After a few climbs we had some amazing descents. The were fast. Not sure how fast but let's just say that if I had a garmen it would have read , fast. This pic I had to hang on both brakes to make the stop. It was worth the stop. As I pulled in I didn't even notice Carrie taking pics of us coming down the mountain.
At the bottom there was a glacial river that disappeared into what seemed nowear.
We stopped and went on an old bridge from 1938 and looked down. We could here the water but not see it it must have been 100 feet down.
After a few more climbs and decents we made some good time. It was nice to get the body moving again after yesterday. My body was sore but it seems the vest medicine is to get moving again.
