My first ever solo overnight cycling camping trip! 60km from home to Brittania Beach. Met 3 cyclists on the sea to sky at a viewpoint. Training to ride Vancouver-Whistler and they asked me to take their picture. I said only if I can take one with you too!
After snacking on flax and chia seeds during the ride up, I set up camp and made soup for dinner featuring beef jerky and veggies.
Very kind of the Brittania Beach Fire Department to let me stay on their property. I didn’t see anyone inside though, so they may never know I was there!
I got to attempt my first bear sling! Don’t think I did it right, but there are also no bears here…
It was cold overnight! So much I had trouble sleeping. Will have to find a balaclava or ski mask to cover my face during cold nights. Otherwise the overnight camp went well.
Sunday morning: A banana and quinoa salad featuring blueberries and veggies, then packed up and hit the road again!
My Sunday route was roundabout, making it 71km back home. Ran into a cycle touring couple on their way from Vancouver to Squamish. Great to see other cyclists with panniers and the whole shebang!
