Gra Nomad Wanderings

Friday, June 16, 2006


Yesterday Fay and I put Banana Split together (our Bike Friday tandem) and road the hilliest, roughest surface and narrowest 2 lane roads we've ridden on... maybe ever.... well, nearly Jim. Gears were not working 100% which is essential if you're in hilly country on a tandem. Did 25 km which I was happy with.

So, where the hell is Saltspring Island? Does anyone know? It certainly can't be Kansas or Missouri can it? Right! There are some very wealthy people on this island and a bunch of hippies. If we'd stayed here overnight we could have ridden round the whole island probably... if we like hills and rough bitumen and narrow stuff. Bit different to Dubbo! Oh, alas... we were supposed to be riding BAK as I speak......

I think I know!
It's kind of north of Vancouver Island--off the Canadian coast! I would love to go there! Pretty rich huh? We might not fit in ;-)!!!

Amazing! You've ridden all over the US, and the bumpiest ride ever is in Canada!

No, we're not in Kansas any more. Jettybetty is right... Saltspring is indeed one of the islands off Vancouver Island. Tomorow we're ferrying (with tandem) to Gabriola Island for the day. Hope the terrain is a bit better. We did enjoy the trails they have in US such as Katy Trail in MO. Don't worry Jen, we'll be back cycling in US pretty soon... God willing. This time Washington and Oregon.
