Le Half-Tour de U.S. 2014 | Day 4

Merritt to Hope

Today's ride was just about perfect. Sunny weather, lovely mountains, and a slight tailwind for most of the day. James' knee appears to be getting better but to be safe, we continued to keep a reasonable pace to ensure that it isn't overworked.

Our plan tomorrow is to ride to Coquitlam to meet up with our friend Jim who will join us on the trip for a couple of weeks.
