Boy what a long day! I managed to put another 167km in just one day! I rode the Trans-Canada Highway for most of the day, only getting off in Calgary where I rode the bike path that follows the Bow River. It’s very similar to what we have in Ottawa along the canal. On the path I met some bike cops and I quickly snapped a picture with them. I hit a bit of rain while riding but it lasted only about 45 minutes. Besides that it was an awesome ride, I really don’t mind the flatness of the prairies! I am now spending the night at Gavin’s (my best friend) grandparent’s house just east of Calgary.

For those who panicked last night because there was no update, let me explain… I got a tattoo! It took about 2.5 hours to finish but it is definitely the best souvenir I could get of the trip. Yesterday I visited Banff with German tourists that I met at the hostel. We all had a great time checking out the hot springs, cowboy shops and the Banff springs hotel (their version of the Chateau Laurier) . I also picked up a bit of German, well sort of. Meeting them has made me want to bike across Europe and possibly add to my tattoo one day… 🙂 Thanks for the memories guys!

and now the photos!
