We made it to Banff, AB Canada on Tuesday afternoon after leaving from Dirty Kanza 200 in Emporia, KS Sunday after the race. To say the drive here was perfect would be an understatement. This group of guys and Chris Peter's RV was insanely perfect to make the cross country trip. Once we arrived our legs were itching to get out of town.
Last night, Wednesday June 8th, our core group decided to do a final shake down ride from Banff, AB up to Lake Louise. The ride out was close to 40 miles. We've heard nothing but unreal descriptions of the Lake, and if Mike Riemer from Salsa Cycles tells you to go somewhere or do something, you do it. The ride kept us around 4000 ft and surrounded us by 9000 ft peaks the entire way.
We all sat down at the campground once we arrived. Listen to the podcast to get in on our thoughts less than 48 hours from the start. Thank you to everyone for following us, and for your unreal support. This ride is happening. #unlearnpavement
