30 May 2019 My god that was a friggin long winter! True to form, we have been thrust straight from icy blizzards to fire season here in Alberta. My original plan for this trip was to finish the final western leg of the TCAT on Van Isle but as the weather has been shaping up to be gorgeous in the PNW, I was easily convinced by my Welsh riding sidekick (Dragonman) to check out the WABDR. The rough plan was to jump on the Best Rest NW Passage trail in MT and head west until we intersect with the WABDR then ride to Hood River, check out the coast the hammer it back home. I’ve been getting updates re trail conditions on the BDR and l think it’s fair to say that we’ll be expecting “springlike” trail conditions in some spots. Hopefully the snow has melted by the time we roll through. Ya right! Here’s a little photo teaser since we’ve just ridden 4 days (day 2 on the BDR).
