Trial Run

Over Mother's Day weekend we thought we'd load up the gear and do a trial run at what might be the route we take out of Calgary. Sunshine, hail, railroad ties and clay clad tires. We had happy boys throughout and decided the Bear's Paw Dam route is an unlikely repeat. It was an adventure though! We did make it to Cochrane, our destination. And the return trip Sunday was an alternate route which proved much easier. As for our bikes...Rick will be adding a bigger granny gear and we'll put on skinnier tires that don't rub on the frame. And...I've an hour or so of cleaning to get the grit and clay off my bike.
