rest stop on the way to Squamish

2010-06-06

The first day of the trip is characterised in my memory by the sunshine and rich green grass of our rest stops and our campground. And by a bit of wonder at finally finding ourselves in the saddle. The day was a quick one, and we were settled in our campground under the imposing granite Chief of Squamish by about 1 pm. I found the leisure of the afternoon unsettling, as it didn't match my memories of constant exhaustion and work on past bike trips. Of course, I needn't have worried. This turned out to be the only day of the trip that left a free afternoon for mathematics.

We found friends at Corsa Cycles in Squamish, who provided us, unasked and for free, with new brake cabling, advice and fresh cold water (taking an interest in my bicycle, the mechanic there found himself "bothered" by the arrangement of my rear brake cable housing and had to fix it to satisfy his own compulsions, an event which left me with much crisper braking and much gratitude). They're a true bike shop.
