Before we departed all of those who were to be involved in the cycling trek across Canada were interviewed to find out about their preparations and their thoughts and feelings about the trip ahead.
Some highlights include:
Alistair said he was concerned about bears. He was excited about living out an old dream
Trevor was worried about whether he would make it over some of the bigger mountains with the bike ladened with saddle bags and said he was happy to join Annie in the wagon.
John was happy to have his son join him along the way and hoped that others would too. A number had already contacted him to let him know about their intentions to join the group for sections of the trail in their hometown province.
Brendan said he was proud his dad was taking on the challenge of the cycling trek across Canada and he looked forward to joining him from his home in Pemberton to Whistler and then from Kaloops to Banff. The only thing he was concerned about was the road traffic especially along some of the highways. Some roads are known to be more dangerous than others.
