Let me tell you, I've driven that hill out of Hope on Hwy 3 many a time, but I never fully realized what a frickin' HUGE hill it is! Grant and I spent a quality 6 and a half hours on it yesterday, and it was nothing short of painful.
The highlight of the day was meeting a couple of lovely lady cyclists from Hope who were out for a day trip and were able to tell us which campsite was best and where to expect the worst hills (and nicest flat sections) on the road ahead. One of them even recognized us from the news!
We managed to get a good 10 hours of sleep in the tent last night, making today's ride to Princeton much faster and easier than yesterday's journey. We've still got a couple days before we hit Osoyoos (tell your friends to come out on the 9th!), but here's a great photo that Grant's uncle took of the Q&A during Mission screening.
