This was my last segment of the tour, I rode from White Fish, Montana to British Columbia through the southern edge of British Columbia. It took me 6 days to complete and I totaled 625 miles.
During the 7 days of my ride, I climbed a combined elevation gain of 40,000 and passed over 7 summits - all photographed above. This was the most physically challenging part of my trip. The weather was full sun exposure during all 7 days and each consisted of 80-100 miles of riding and 4,000 - 7,000 feet of climbing. The scenery was spectacular, so the rides were consistently punctuated by stops to take photos and breaks.
On my second to last night before Vancouver, I stayed in Osoyoos, British Columbia. The ride following Osoyoos was a 110 miles and I climbed 6,800 feet. I rode along the Similkameen River (top left) and passed Copper Mountain at Sunday summit (top right).
The last day of riding was a descent from Manning Park at Allison Pass summit. Thought most of the ride was a descent, I still climbed 4,000 feet over a distance of 150 miles.
This completed my tour from NYC to Vancouver. It was an incredible ride which sparked the planning of similar trips. I covered a distance of 3,706.40 miles, climbed 113,905 feet, and burned 157,796 calories over the course of 54 total days, but only 46 days of riding.
I want to thank all of those that contributed to my trip through my GoFundMe campaign and all of the support I received while on the trip from friends and family. I especially want to thank those that took the time to FaceTime and/or call me while riding, the conversations lessened the physical challenges of this trip which made the rides very enjoyable. I also want to thank the numerous Warmshowers hosts that opened their doors and welcomed me, I'm deeply indebted to all of you.
