As day 5 comes to a close, we are resting up in west kelowna for the night. We have already met a large amount of diverse great people, from an old German guy known as the king of cheese to a young nurse eager to see the world. The hospitality of British Columbia has been excellent. I have enjoyed the motivation that passing cars give us as we climb the BC mountains. People have been very willing to give us a shower and a bed for the night which is much better then sleeping outside with the bears (I may have a slight fear of bear attacks).
In terms of bike milage today was our longest and hardest day so far. We road 120km from merrit to kelowna passing over a mountain summit at 1700m above sea level. The climb was long and the descent was cold and rainy but we made it to Kelowna in relatively good time. Tomorrow we are headed to Vernon before making the long trek to Revelstoke the day after.
