Then I rode to the meeting point where I'd be waiting for Will, Scott and Ben who would be riding straight from the airport (talking about extreme). They got to Vancouver airport, built the bikes and started riding after a 6 hour flight. I was waiting for them at a Starbucks where I was having a Venti Moccha (thanks to my buddy Martin for the coupons)
We took turns leading the pack for about 70Km me having the chance to lead for the lastbit until we reached Mission, BC and the Best Western Hotelat 5:30PM. I am enjoying a nice comfortable bed thanks to riding buddy Ben Amina.
Shower, change of clothes and down to the restaurant where we had a celebratory beer to reward ourselves for a first day as well as a nice chicken parmigiana pasta. 8PM and we're back in our rooms (as the guys are feeling the 3 hour jetlag) and ready for another 90Km tomorrow to Hope, BC. The scenery today was beautiful, greay day but no rain and being an allergic/asmathic guy I can say today is the cleanest air I have breathed in a while from Vancouver to Mission.
