Golden Ears Camping Trip- Sunday

Up at 7-30 after a good night’s sleep. Powdered eggs, coffee and a bagel for breakfast mmm mmm. Packed up, then hit the road again. We saw a deer enjoying the morning sun (maybe she was drying off after getting a soaking last night too).


We took pretty much the same route on the way back, stopping for a Quiznos. We’d had a Subway on the way out, so it got me wondering who makes the better sub, I think this round goes to Quiznos - better bread and nicer cheese! For the sake of completeness and fairness Holly tells me that she preferred the Subway as it was bigger so it’s all tied at 1 a piece in our house.


Heading back over the Pattullo Bridge was tougher than the cross going out. There is only one bike path so this time we were going against traffic which was quite heavy so it was all a bit hectic. We had to stop for a gummi bear break afterwards!


We made a few deviations from the route out, a few off street paths including the waterfront at New Westminster where we saw the world’s tallest tin soldier.


Winding our way back through the streets of Vancouver, I noticed this very North American phenomenon, the shoes over the phone wire. You see it everywhere in Vancouver, I wonder who started this? Who was the first shoe thrower…

By the end of the ride we were pretty tired but it felt good to have covered the distance and survived a thunderstorm. Can’t wait to get going now!


We will be cycling the Pacific Coast from Vancouver to Tijuana over six weeks starting in August 2012 to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. Please show your support by sponsoring us here, leaving a comment below and sharing our blog.
