Day 1

Day 1 August 24, 2013-08-24
St.Albert to Goldeye Lake Campground 358km 6.5 hours



Photos H. Yates



The Group ride started after a cheque presentation and a few speeches.





We had about 20 bikes along for the 45 minute ride to Onoway where the group disbanded.




I said an emotional farewell to my wonderful wife of 25 years. Not a good-bye but a see you soon.



An uneventful ride ensued on roads I have driven or ridden many times so few stops and no photos. I needed to make some miles before dark.
Im sitting in a great campground Called Goldeye Lake near Nordegg Alberta on Hwy 11. As Im typing this into my laptop a fellow approaches me and asks if Id like a plate of food. Taken by surprise, I say yes! He must have seen me munching on trail mix and took pity on me. He brings over a plate with a huge BBQd chicken breast, campfire potatoes and onions, and pickled beets. Thanks Dean and family!!



Tomorrow will be the Icefield Parkway!

Oh, and yes my bumb is sore!
