Friday May 17, 2013. Day 4

 Hope to Manning Park

It was a tough, long day. Up to the Hope Slide was brutal, 20 kms, with the last 6 at an incline of 7%. After a valley we then climbed up to Allison Pass. The hard shoulders were minimal, if there at all, and half way it started to rain. With that and a temperature of 3 degrees C at the top, it was not much fun. We got lots of praise and encouragement from all those whom we met which helped, and we did see a bear, munching close to roadside. After taking a few photos, Paul pedalled away with the bear spray, leaving Lois standing between her bike and the animal!

We stayed on the traditional territory of the Okanagan First Nations.
