With a stiff headwind, interspersed with snow, hail and rain, Bryan battled into Fernie, 130km. There was just a brief hour of sunshine to brighten the way. Other drivers, however, stopped to cheer him on. Two fascinated men from Germany took photos of Bryan, promising to send them when they get home. They just couldn't understand why or how anyone would bike through the mountains.
Bryan will enjoy the warmth of a motel room tonight in Sparwood, BC, north of Fernie. This brings his total to 1071 kms.
He had to eat more often to keep up his energy, including a stop at Tim Hortons and a good feed of barbequed ribs in Sparwood.
Bryan looks forward to reaching Lethbridge tomorrow and a visit with Jason Anderson and Felix and Sharon Tillmans.
That will be a good end to his first full week. It's been a very good one
