Having exhausted all possible delaying opportunities it was now bike assembly time.
Next was another walk into town for some essentials, you know the type of things needed for outdoor life, sweets, chocolate and cake (what we want to eat) but an epic fail occured; porridge, dried pasta and peanut butter (what we actually got) and apparently Mary Berry does not have a recipe with these in! but we do have enough food for 4 days now.
We did take a stroll to the river.
Then the moment you have all been waiting for the BEAR SPRAY. Plus a super loud whistle, apparently they are sensitive to sound (no chance of any bears at night then with the bullfrog / elephant cross who sleeps in our tent every night).
Thank you and good night.

How pretty is it there. Lovin the bear spray picture. How exciting that finally you are preparing for the off, peddling away on your journey. X
Hope we finish our cycle with the same can of spray!
So you’ve been in a car to Gatwick, plane to Calgary and bus to Banff. Are you actually planning to do any cycling stuff? You can’t put it off for ever.
BTW Is bear spray like fly spray?
We only cycle when absolutely necessary.
Similar except you can use the pepper Spray for steak aux pouivre in the event of no bears
