Day 29 Lillooet to Pemberton

We biked from Lillooet to Pemberton today which encompassed about 5K ft of climbing and descending with many of the sections in the 10 - 15% grade up and down and the total ride around 60 miles long!

I just showered at the community center and feel great.  It was one of the toughest if not the toughest climb of the whole ride due to the grades and distance.

It is so hard to capture the grandeur of this place.
We took our helmets off on the long climb
Check out Rick's description of Kiara descending this....
I have not posted for quite a while due to issues with electronics access in Canada and am connecting using a computer at the Pemberton library for which they charge $1 for two days of access 1 hour each day.  The lst two days have been really tough going with over 5K feet of climbing each day and more than 60 miles.  The legs have done well but want a rest.  Will they get it?  We "hear" it is all downhill to Whistler.
