A short day of cycling between Kitwanga and Hazletons in Canada as I continued my journey cycling across the Americas. The bad weather I had been experiencing for weeks improved which was a bonus!
Cycling from Kitwanga
(Blog post written: Aug 31 2009)
Overnight, two cyclists turned up, so we had a bit of a chat, but I left before they did despite us cycling in the same direction, as I only had a short day in mind.
I called it a day at Hazleton, and cycled down into the Ksan campground – a move I could regret when I have to cycle back uphill in the morning.
A combination of insect bites has made my right hand swell up to twice the size of my left hand. Outstanding. On the plus side, the weather is amazing now, and should be for the next few days.
