Mission control here again. Whisky6 has just reported into Fernie, British Columbia where he is currently seeking large amounts of pizza and a bed. He has covered a total of 158.7 miles and more than 13,000 feet of elevation change since the start. During his 83 mile day today he faced dry-heave-inducing climbs and periods of exhaustion bad enough to make shifting gears a serious challenge. He has synced up with some other riders which has really mentally helped him keeping pushing (often literally). So far there have been bear and elk sitings and last night a herd of horses wandered through their camp. 110 miles to go before US border.
Here are some video updates from the ride yesterday (day 1).
