Touring Green - Blog 5: Hope to Manning Park (May 20)

The Boy Who Biked Up a Mountain and Came Down a Hill

by

Leaving Hope was like leaving “it’s all fun and games”-land and the first of the serious mountains (like “I’m trying to get this work done for tomorrow’s 9am deadline” serious).

So these videos say it all… things just got intense for the first time this day.. I mean biking 112km the first day and then biking 104km the next days was nothing without any previous long term cycling experience but going over 1km up today was definitely a challenge…

A special thanks to Emily Hoegg for keeping me alive that day!
