The bike tour across Canada continued when cycling from Continental Divide to Big Creek. I ended up in another state campground, with plenty of mosquitoes for company!
Cycling out of Continental Divide
(Blog post written: Aug 20 2009)
I had a breakfast burrito in the morning before setting out, and it was one of the rare times on the Pan-American bike tour that I have felt full after breakfast!
Back to more hills again, but I only had 80 kms to go and it was over with within five hours. Big Creek is another state campground, so it was another free night. There were a lot of mosquitoes though, and my previously cleared up legs are now sporting all sorts of lumps.
