"Shulaps Gold".... Tour de Chilcotins Day 5
I awoke on day 5 with excessive beer doping regrets. Maybe I should have done this clean? After a few cups of coffee and a real breakfast that Danielle whipped up I was ready for the final and biggest stage. We set off with a 3 km warm-up but soon after hit the wall that would be our 1500m climb to the high alpine! Slideshow
Some spots were ridable.....
And others were definitely not!
After 3 hours we reached one of my favourite valleys on the planet and found the perfectly etched single-track gold of the Lillooet Range.
It seemed to be raining everywhere but where we were!
And then it was time to shred the 1500m descent! I couldn't remember a time when this trail was in better shape! A little bit of moisture made it as tacky as it's ever been.
Cheers to a great 5 days of riding!
