1) ALLISON PASS — this was my first Summit of the trip and was 1342m and spanned kms. At the top was the Manning Park lodge, it was about 5deg at the top with snow on the shoulder of the road. Also passed my first black bear about 5ft from me, I was paranoid for the rest of the trip thru Manning Park
2) KICKING HORSE PASS — this was the second climb of my day after 10mile hill and reached a height of 1627m. It was pouring rain for the entire climb and cold. It is so high that the railway built a spiral tunnel to make for safe rail passage.
5) ROGERS PASS — this was another one of those rainy days in BC. Remember it rained 22 of the first 30 days of my ride. Rogers Pass reaches 1330m but didn’t feel as hard to ride as I expected. Perhaps it was because I had a few climbs achieved already? I am so glad I sisnt have to bike east to west thru the avalanche tunnels as it was scary enough taking them on downhill.
