553k, and Arvid rolled into the Forks with a wonderfully warm welcome from the great crowd here!!
We’re stopped at the Tim Hortons on Pembina for some chili. It’s cold out there, and the 501k have taken their toll on city streets.
***At around 6:30, our tracker on Arvid got reset, but it’s still tracking in a new ride sessions. Here’s the update since then and then below it the map of what came before all of that.***
Add that to this for one CRAZY LONG RIDE.
Arvid’s hit the 450 km mark, after visiting a number of different pit-stops, kissing babies (Ok, no – there were no babies) and shaking hands (with, ahem, MAYOR Brian Bowman). Now we’ve got some riding and driving ahead of us…
We were delayed in getting to Arvid when the rain hit, so he got wet for about twenty minutes. At the speeds he travels it’s (no joke) sometimes hard to catch him. He gets through a lot of jams faster than we can. Anyway, rain is happening but it doesn’t stop him!
Heading through Fort Whyte!
Arvid spent an hour with a great bike crew. We’ve dropped off books at the Forks, Assiniboine, and more pit stops.
Stopped by the Assiniboine Park pit stop to join in bike to work day. Met Mayor Bowman and some other wonderful people. Have a great day of riding!!
And that’s 350 km, folks. Here’s what Arvid was up to while you were sleeping. Keep coming back here to check in on Arvid as he starts visiting Pit Stops this morning for Bike to Work Day 2015!
