Touring Green - Blog 17: Calgary to Lacombe (June 5) 

Don't Pop Till You Get Enough

Calgary to Lacombe was a long trek (for those of you looking on the map, it’d be a nearly impossible bike ride without the help of my sis driving me some of the distance). But, despite having this automotive boost, it was still one of the longer bikes at 120k (with some fun off-roading at the end of the day!). In fact, it was such a long day that concluded with me being completely ambushed by mosquitoes as I had to push my bicycle about a mile on a very beat-up road just praying for no tube to pop.

In fact, I had a mantra that I repeated all day "no cops, no pops, road conditions stay good" (I wasn't sure at that point if I was legally aloud on The Deerfoot Hwy).

Here's a video I took halfway though the day in Red Deer:
