It has been 3 days since my last update on the ride. We are currently staying at Keremeos and watching the Canuks game.

I am happy with 68 kms ride today from Princeton to Keremeos after nursing my right knee for a couple of days.

This blog will be updated regularly but please see for more detail about our day to day ride.

Thank you ... Finance

I haven't done anything to deserve it but it was such a nice treat by Finance for send-off delicious cakes. My heart felt appreciation and thanks to everyone of you.
